Home Heat Transfer Lessons and Activities


Home Heat Transfer - student guide (Google doc)

Students consider how they can use less energy to heat their home while still keeping it at a comfortable temperature. Home Heat Transfer demonstrates the concepts of thermal energy transfer and familiarizes students with different insulation materials and their roles in heat transfer and slowing heat loss.   

Home Heat Transfer Student Explorations (Google doc)

The student explorations help students learn more about Convection, Conduction and Radiation and can be used before or during the Home Heat Transfer unit.
