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?
