Activity

Heat on the Move part of Earth and Space Science:Summer 2010:Activities
To introduce students to the concept that heat transfer through convection is more efficient then heat transfer through conduction. This activity is meant to be one of many common experiences that help students understand that convection is a major driving force on our planet, i.e. in the atmosphere which is a major cause of weather; in the ocean which is a major cause of ocean currents; in the mantle which is a major cause of the movement of crustal plates.
