Energy in the Atmosphere: Conduction, Convection, Radiation
Unit on the Earth's atmosphere focusing on Conduction, Convection and Radiation. Students define the terms in a foyer box (examples and pictures). The next part is a description of the way those 3 types of energy heat the earth's atmosphere. The independent practice is to sort out 10 different "activities" to decide whether they are are conduction, convection, or radiation.
Heat Energy Transfer-Extended Response *FREEBIE*
This is an extended response (open response) question on heat energy transfers. This is a 2 part (part a & part b) question asking about the ways that heat energy transfers. There is also a rubric/scoring guide included as well as the clear learning target/objective that matches the assessment.
Heat Energy Tic-tac-toe choice board
This choice board is a great way to provide extension activities when learning about heat energy. The options on the choice board include assignments in relation to heat transfer (conduction, convection, and radiation), insulation, heat production (burning, friction, electricity, mixing chemicals, and movement of molecules.
Heat Transfer Practice Worksheet
The Science Matters! Included in this file is a worksheet for students to solidify and demonstrate their understanding of how heat transfers via conduction, convection and radiation. The product is 5 pages total, but only 2 pages of actual work for the students to complete.
Water Cycle and Heat Transfer Bingo Review Game
This activity is a bingo game to review the water cycle and heat transfer processes, including radiation, conduction, and convection. It includes 4 different bingo cards and a set of cards to cut apart and use as clues. This works great as a student center during test review!
