Matter on the MoveAdd to list Details
Learners observe and conduct experiments demonstrating the different properties of hot and cold materials.
M&M's in Different TemperaturesAdd to list Details
Learners design their own experiment to investigate whether the temperature of the surrounding water affects the rate at which the colored coating dissolves from an M&M.
EvaporationAdd to list Details
This three-part activity consists of an activity that groups of learners develop themselves, a given procedure, and an optional demonstration.
Change in Temperature: Endothermic ReactionAdd to list Details
Learners investigate signs of a chemical reaction when they mix vinegar and baking soda. In addition to a gas being produced, learners also notice the temperature decreases.
Save a SnowmanAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore the concept of insulation by trying to keep Olaf the Snowman from melting. This activity encourages critical thinking and problem solving.
Polar Bear GloveAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners will explore how animal in cold areas stay warm.
Ice Cream Shake
In this tasty activity, learners make their own ice cream any day of the year in an exploration of heat and cold. Highlights include freezing and melting and the transition from liquid to solid.
How Animals Stay Warm
In this quick activity, learners explore how blubber protects animals from the cold by making a "blubber mitt." Using cooking shortening, two zip-top sandwich bags, and duct tape, learners simulate bl
Exploring Moisture on the Outside of a Cold CupAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore the relationship between cooling water vapor and condensation. Learners investigate condensation forming on the outside of a cold cup.
CondensationAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore the process of condensation.
Hot Cans and Cold Cans
Learners apply their knowledge of heat transfer to design two cans - one that will retain heat and one that will cool down quickly.
Slowing the Flow
In this experiment, pairs of learners explore how cold water affects circulation. The mammalian diving reflex (MDR) slows circulation when the body is exposed to cold water.
Ocean CurrentsAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners will explore how density is affected by temperature and how that can create currents.
In this hands-on activity, learners explore static electricity through the use of common household products. They also explore the connection between static electricity and cold weather.
ConvectionAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners model atmospheric convection currents using food coloring, water, and clear cups. Activity includes step-by-step instructions, STEM connections, and more.
