What better way to learn about heat transfer than to experience it firsthand?! Basic thermodynamic concepts provide a fantastic foundation for students learning chemistry and physics. One of my favorite station labs of the year are my heat stations and the learning from these stations lasts the whole year long! Through hands-on phenomena, students explore conduction, convection, radiation, and other concepts that govern the behavior of heat. Over the years, I have adapted these stations to…

DOWNLOAD THE THINKING THERMALLY PRINTABLE HERE What's more exciting than launching a brand new blog? A brand new blog with the first installment of the video series. Welcome to the first ever 60-Second Science on The LearnEd Teacher! If you've been around for a while, you'll see all of our previous blog's content here and find that it's a little more user-friendly. We'd love for you to click around The LearnEd Teacher (or TLT, as we have affectionately nicknamed it) because there are a few…
