Revealing our Thermodynamic Beings Level II

Students investigate thermal insulation/bridges using cans containing hot or cold water and thermal absorbtion/emmisivity using different materials and coloured surfaces. They record their results on templates or their illustrations using a red-blue code. Red indicates warmer areas i.e. areas with greater amounts of thermal energy. Blue indicates cooler areas i.e. areas with lesser amounts of thermal energy. Students can supplement sensory judgements with thermometers.
