This is my "Melting Crayons" experiment. Students will be shown 3 different forms of crayons:Crayon shavings, broken crayon pieces, and a whole crayon. Each form of crayon should be placed between a folded piece of wax paper, then pressed on with an iron for a number of seconds, no more than 20-30.
Check out this unit if you are teaching your students all about HEAT, is includes 3 student interactive books on heat, thermal energy, insulators, conductors, friction and more, 4 hands on learning science experiments (does not include the supplies you will need for the experiments) in your classrooms, comprehension passages with assessments, vocabulary with assessments, close reading activities for tricky words, answering questions, and providing text evidence, academic word wall cards for your
In this activity, students identify the difference in temperature between two objects by identifying one as the hotter and one as the colder. Then, they draw an arrow to indicate the flow of thermal energy between the two objects. Finally, they answer questions to review the flow of thermal energy, how equilibrium is reached, what happens at equilibrium and how to disturb thermal equilibrium.
