Thermal Energy

Choosing at home thermal energy investigations has been a challenge because most of the investigations we do at school during this unit involve fire or hot water! One of the experiments that I suggested this week after our Zoom lesson was a rising water investigation which defies gravity! Click here to learn more. Many of my students told me that they changed variables and tried the investigation multiple times. Love that they are using the Scientific Method!
