Classroom Resources: Energy & Thermodynamics
1 – 6 of 6 Classroom Resources
Heat, Specific Heat, Phase Changes | Elementary School, Middle School
In this lab, students will think critically about the properties, structure and function of materials as they design and build a device used to insulate an ice cube to prevent it from melting.
Phase Changes, Melting Point, Heat | Elementary School
In this lesson, students will review what they know about the three states of matter (solid, liquid, and gas). They will perform a word sort about states of matter and discuss how substances can exist in more than one state of matter. Following this they will contribute to a KWL (Know, Want to know, Learned) chart. The teacher will conclude the lesson with a demonstration using chocolate.
Temperature, Heat, Temperature | Elementary School, Middle School
In this demonstration, students will investigate what happens to air when it is heated.
Heat, Temperature, Temperature | Elementary School
In this demonstration students will learn about the cause and effects of global warming. Students will research about global warming, while also comparing it to a demonstration. This will help students to better understand the effects that temperature change can have on the planet.
Heat of Combustion, Heat, Exothermic & Endothermic, Combustion | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video investigates both the mechanical and the chemical processes used in the internal combustion engine, as well as the history and evolution of the combustion engine.
Electricity, Anode, Cathode, Galvanic Cells, Heat, Renewable Energy | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video analyzes alternatives to petroleum based fossil fuels, such as biofuels and hydrogen fuel cells.
