Investigate, observe, and explain that heat is produced when one object rubs against another, such as rubbing one's hands together.


General Information

Subject Area: Science
Grade: 3
Body of Knowledge: Physical Science
Big Idea: Energy Transfer and Transformations - A. Waves involve a transfer of energy without a transfer of matter.

B. Water and sound waves transfer energy through a material.

C. Light waves can travel through a vacuum and through matter.

Clarification for grades 5-8: The target understanding for Big Idea 11: Energy Transfer and Transformations, is the Law of Conservation of Energy: Energy is conserved as it transfers from one object to another and from one form to another.

Name Description
When Things Start Heating Up This lesson is intended to give students a general idea of how heat is produced from human-based activities and mechanical and electrical machines. The lesson provides activities for student understanding as to how and why heat is produced from things that give off light, from machines, or when one thing is rubbed against another.
Rubbing Objects Together Students demonstrate that heat is produced when objects are rubbed against one another by conducting several simple investigations.

Virtual Manipulative

Name Description
Friction

This is a great simulation to show how friction causes materials to heat up and melt. A "virtual" thermometer is used to show the increase in temperature as books are rubbed against each other.
