Heating up - PrimaryConnections
Publication Date: April, 2013
Type of Resource: Unit of Work

This online resource is a PrimaryConnections unit that investigates different heat sources and how heat moves from one object to another.

The resource allows the students to investigate the difference in conductivity of materials.

The unit shows how heat is important in many ways in our everyday lives, such as drying our hair, cooking our dinner and warming our water.

It also deals with the dangers of heat and how we react instinctively when we touch a hot stove or walk barefooted on hot sand.
