Thermal Energy for third grade - vocab, three experiments, lessons - easy and no prep

Thermal Energy Science STEM Experiments

We had so much fun learning Thermal Energy in third grade. I loved the hands-on ways to learn vocab and my students could not stop talking about the STEM based science experiments.

This Physical Science unit includes NINE experiments to explore Heat and Thermal Energy - including friction, chemical changes, and burning. Student handout pages include test prep questions to insure understanding of each lab.

3rd Grade Physical Science: Heat and Thermal Energy (9) Science Experiments

Thermal energy is demonstrated with the hand warmer reaction. Science activity measures temperature change in the chemical reaction of iron with air.

Elementary School Science Projects

Grade Unit 1 -- Thermal energy is demonstrated with the hand warmer reaction. Science activity measures temperature change in the chemical reaction of iron with air.

A unique project for teaching STEM. The heat loss project is a great project for middle school classes to cover how thermal energy moves through homes. Technology in this lesson enhances the learning experience.
