Heat Transfer and Insulators

2017 Science Week Primary Resource Activity

In the Heat Transfer and Insulators DPSM/ESERO themed framework, pupils investigate aspects of heat transfer and discover that energy can be transferred.  They get the opportunity to recognise a range of sources of heat and use thermometers to measure and compare temperatures in different places. They explore reasons for temperature variations and investigate ways of keeping things warm or cool. They then apply what they have learned to investigating the implications for global warming and its effects on sea levels and our climate.
