In this activity, students will observe how ice melts on wood and metal blocks, and they will draw conclusions about how heat conducts through different materials.
Real World Science Topics:
- An exploration of engineering design
- An exploration of solar energy
Students will gain an understanding of how heat is conducted through different materials, and they will explore how materials can be modified to alter their conductive properties.
