Product Description
Do space and emergency blankets really work? Have your students design and carry out an experiment to determine if these lightweight sheets really do prevent heat from escaping. This packet provides complete directions to run this experiment which uses the scientific method to explore a thermal insulator.

Students can write this experiment as a full lab write-up. The packet contains the materials, procedure, and comes with the data table which can be incorporated into a laboratory notebook. A grading rubric for the lab write-up is offered. Two versions of custom graph paper are also provided, one blank and the other with the X and Y axis scales already labeled. This allows you to differentiate the graph. If students finish early they can work on the provided Venn diagram that compares electrical and thermal insulators. An answer key is included.
