Hot stuff! The energy of heat is explored using a variety of activities. Students predict, observe and explain temperature increases and how that related to a variety of difference colours. We then move onto insulating properties of different fabrics, again involving lots of measurement. The final activity uses UV sensitive plastic beads to observe and measure the effect UV light has and how sun screens can block UV energy. Best used on a sunny day, with lots of numeracy links.
Once you have booked a Resource Kit, you can download the Teachers Manual which is found under the Teachers navigation tab.
