  1. This is a 5e Explore activity. Students collect observations about changes in temperature and the transfer of energy as visualized by small red boxes of Es that move into and out of the samples that are in direct contact with each other or from the sample to the surrounding air. This explore can be
  2. This is a set of 5e Engage, Explore, and Explain activities has students investigate trends in thermal properties of materials by observing how different materials store thermal energy and by working with a database of observations to determine which set of data would best answer a research question
  3. This is a series of three engage and explore activities and a performance assessment on the transfer of thermal energy in a convection cycle (convection cell) that provides skills needed to meet NGSS MS-PS-3-4.

NGSSMS-ETS1-1
Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
NGSSMS-PS3-3
Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer. Examples of devices could include an insulated box, a solar cooker, and a Styrofoam cup. Assessment does not include calculating the total amount of thermal energy transferred.
NGSSMS-PS3-4
Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample. Examples of experiments could include comparing final water temperatures after different masses of ice melted in the same volume of water with the same initial temperature, the temperature change of samples of different materials with the same mass as they cool or heat in the environment, or the same material with different masses when a specific amount of energy is added. Assessment does not include calculating the total amount of thermal energy transferred.
NGSSMS-ETS1-2
Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
