Investigating Heat Kit

Comprehensive Classroom Activities and Lessons All In One Convenient Package

Address all the facets of physical science with Investigating Physical Science Kits. These innovative packages include apparatus and activities to fully explore a key physical science topic with an entire class of 30 students. Set up multiple stations, each with its own apparatus and accompanying experiment. Students travel from station to station in groups, applying the knowledge learned at previous stations to their following activities. Each of the experiments addresses a different aspect of the same physical science concept, so upon completion students have concrete, hands-on experience and complete understanding. A detailed activity guide provides instructions for each station experiment, and an included quick-start guide simplifies initial setup. And for your convenience, a durable storage system keeps all the apparatus, guides, and materials organized for repeat use. The stackable tote can be stored compactly with all other Investigating Physical Science Kits for a complete curriculum of activities.

Explore all aspects of heat and temperature with the five activites and two demonstrations included in this hands-on kit. Students investigate thermal conductivity, phase change, radiation, linear expansion, convection of liquids, and more. Simple experiments include heat transfer using hot and cold water; phase change of water into ice, then back into water; and more. Students test the different rates of thermal conductivity of different metals and then extend their experiemnt to determine the specific heat of unknown metals. Heat transfer by radiation is also completed to highlight how the color of a substance affects its thermal properties. The final hands-on demonstrations illustrate both linear expansion and heat convection. Kit includes radiation cans, heat conductometers, a specific heat specimen set, alcohol thermometers, LCD strips, and teacher and student guides. Developed by the Science Kit product development team. Grades 7–12.

Ordering information: Bunsen burners, beakers, a hot plate, and an infrared lamp are required, but not included.
