This text is a mini experiment that students can do in the classroom to illustrate how thermal energy works. I would use this in the middle of a unit on energy after students have some knowledge on the types of energy.
SCIENCE: Types of Energy Anchor Chart - Use this mini anchor chart to help teach Science TEK Help your students remember the difference between mechanical, electrical, light, thermal, and sound energy.
Technology for student use in STEM classes 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.
