Peaks and Passes Day 15: April 29

Expedition Itinerary Plan for Day 15:

We make the technically easy ascent of Mera Peak (6476m). The summit view includes 5 of the World’s 6 highest mountains. Descend to the Hongu Valley. Camp (5200m).

Fun Fact of the Day


Mera Peak is 6,476 metres high.

Today’s Activity: Heat Loss Dance

Purpose: To teach students the different ways they can lose heat outdoors.

Using the teachers specifications as a guide, the students will dance out the 4 types of heat loss.

–   The teacher shows the class a diagram of the forms of heat loss which includes CONVECTION, CONDUCTION, RADIATION, and EVAPORATION.

–  As a group, the teacher and class walk through the general space following the forms of heat loss. Name a form of heat loss and have the children move around the gym while using the corresponding dance (allow the to make up their own). Walking through the different types will give the students a better idea of basically how heat loss works as well as memorizing the four types.

What is conduction? Convection? Radiation? Evaporation? Was listening carefully important? Why?
