Heating and cooling teaching resources

Worksheets and lesson ideas to challenge students aged 11 to 16 to think hard about heat transfer (GCSE and Key Stage 3)

This is one of my favourite demonstrations and is a fantastic use of cognitive conflict to get students to reconsider their own ideas about hot and cold surfaces, temperature, conduction, energy transfer and insulation.  

  1. Energy transfer by heating
  2. Specific heat capacity
