Product Description
Thermal Energy
Heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation.
Ice Preservers – An engaging, discovery science activity.

This is my store’s first foray into science (I taught 7th grade science for seven years).

Your students will absolutely LOVE this lab activity, covering
thermal dynamics: heat transfer, thermal equilibrium, conduction, convection, and radiation, etc.

They will engineer an “ice-preserving” chamber (small thermos) out of insulating materials of their choice, all in an effort to prolong the life of an ice cube. Challenging and FUN!!!

Included in this lab activity:
PowerPoint
Engaging and interactive, 17-slide presentation covering:
Thermodynamic vocabulary
Examples of thermal equilibrium, conduction, convection, and radiation

This is a GREAT partner activity, and shouldn’t cost a dime as students provide their own supplies.

See Table of Contents in the Preview for a list of some possible thermos-building materials that students can donate.

*PowerPoint may not be compatible with some Mac software.
