This stimulating title will not only explain these forces but will also allow students to experience them! First, with carefully-crafted and age-appropriate text, it explains key ideas of heat and energy, such as the three main ways heat travels. Then students are challenged to think like a scientist as they learn about the scientific method. Through this viewpoint, readers are then guided through 11 engaging experiments that range from a conductor contest to making ice cream in a bag at room temperature! Each activity features helpful illustrations, step-by-step instructions, and an explanation of important STEM concepts. After reading this title, students will be equipped with a foundational understanding of heat and energy that can help them understand other important aspects of their everyday world!
