We have been studying heat and how it moves by conduction, convection and radiation. Now it is time for students answer the question, "Which type of heat (conduction, convection, radiation) transmits heat the best?" Students used a heat pack and 3 thermometers and set it up to measure the heat convecting in the air, conducting through the material and radiating away from the hot pack. Instructions to write up a formal lab are in the student science notebooks which students may choose to take home with them this weekend to assist them finishing the work we began this week.

If students are not finished by Monday, don't panic, they can come in during lunch and write some more.
