Lesson Plan : Transfer of Heat

Teacher Name:
 Miss. Sundquist
Grade:
 Grade 6
Subject:
 Science

Topic:
 Transfer of Heat
Content:
 How energy is transferred though heat. How materials are used to control the transfer of energy through heat. The teacher will introduce the terms conduction, insulators, convection and radiation.
Goals:
 Students will be able to define conduction, insulators, convection and radiation. Students will be able to recognize good conductors and insulators.
Objectives:
 Knowledge of transfer of energy through heat by observing the lab activity explore conduction.
Materials:
 Smartboard, 2 beakers, hot water, cold water, 2 thermometers, and stopwatch.
Introduction:
 The teacher will display on the smartboard a picture of an amore and a long coat. The students are to answer what one will you wear if it is cold outside. Explain.
Development:
 The teacher will model a lab activity. The teacher will: 1. Fill the larger beaker halfway with hot tap water. Fill the small beaker halfway with cold water. Place a thermometer in each beaker. 2. Without removing the water in either beaker, place the small beaker inside the large beaker. Record the temperature in each beaker every 30 seconds for 2 minutes. The teacher will ask the students: a.) How did the water temperature in each beaker change? b.)In which direction did energy flow? How do you know?
Practice:
 The students will turn to their shoulder buddy and read the definitions.
Accommodations:
 While the students are working independently the teacher will walk over to see if the students are on task or if they need assistance.
Checking For Understanding:
 As the students are working independently the teacher will be walking around the classroom conducting an informal assessment.
Closure:
 The teacher and students will review the new vocabulary and questions.
Evaluation:
 As the students are working independently the teacher will be walking around the classroom conducting an informal assessment.
