Classroom Resources: Energy & Thermodynamics
1 – 5 of 5 Classroom Resources
Physical Properties, History, Measurements, Temperature, SI Units, Accuracy | High School, Middle School, Elementary School
In this activity, students will watch a video and answer questions about how both the thermometer and the concept of temperature evolved over time
Physical Properties, History, Accuracy, Temperature | High School, Middle School, Elementary School
This video tells the story of how temperature as we currently know it evolved. The first thermometers invented in the early 1600s are very different than ones we use today!
Combustion, Heat, Exothermic & Endothermic, Heat of Combustion | High School, Middle School, Elementary 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.
Catalysts, Reduction, Combustion, Redox Reaction, Activation Energy, Oxidation | High School, Middle School, Elementary School
This video investigates the role of a catalytic converter and its corresponding chemical reactions within a vehicle. Students will learn about both oxidation and reduction reactions and how they, in combination with a catalyst, can impact the molecules released in a car’s exhaust.
Renewable Energy, Electricity, Galvanic Cells, Heat, Cathode, Anode | High School, Middle School, Elementary School
This video analyzes alternatives to petroleum based fossil fuels, such as biofuels and hydrogen fuel cells.
