Tuesday: We talked about the effects of heat on solids liquid and gases. We melted an ice cube in a saucepan until it became liquid and then gas (and until it had completely evaporated). We talked about the condensation process (the droplets that had formed on the saucepan). We draw this in our MLB:
Wednesday: We talked about the transmission of heat. We talked about radiation (heat from a light bulb, sun in a window), conduction (pan on the stove and the experiment below) and convection (hot water rising to the top in a cold fish tank). We also talked about microwave heat and how it worked. Then we did this experiment:
Thursday: We did another heat conduction experiment. Here's the complete procedure.
Friday: We explored the effect of hot and cold air with this experiment.
