Lesson Plans

Transfer The Heat:

This lesson introduces how heat transfers to different substances using an electrical device. The electrical device used create thermal energy changes a substance’s state of matter. This lesson contains a lab experiment that tests the timing at which butter changes to its melting point while using a lamp. This lab questions whether using a different electric device will conclude the same results. 

This is lesson 3 in the Detecting Electrical and Thermal Energy Unit.

Type: Lesson Plan

Check The Temperature:

This lesson introduces the different states of matter for any substance. For this lesson students will be allowed to observe the changes water makes during the following states: solid, liquid, and gas. Students will engage in discussion to predict the temperature when a substance changes from solid to liquid and liquid to gas. Lastly, students will learn the advantages of using a line graph to analyze the relationship between two variables.

This is lesson 2 in a Unit on Detecting Thermal & Electrical Energy. 

Type: Lesson Plan

Be Efficient:

This lesson discusses the efficiency of gathering and storing information manually vs using resourceful technology. For this lesson students will test and collect data using ice cubes.  Students will write code to make a program that shows the changes in states of matter when using a temperature probe to relay the data. This lesson gives examples of different technologies that are more efficient for gathering and storing information for later use. This is the final lesson in the Unit on Detecting Electrical and Thermal Energy.
