Dynamic Demo of the Week- Conduction
A near-perfect example of conduction. Materials: metal knife, piece of wax, candle, something to lay the knife on.
This demo is an excerpt from an Interactive Science Lesson called “Heat Transfer“.
Time-Saving Teacher Tip- Donations
Need supplies donated? Before going further, first put yourself in the right mindset, which means be willing to ask without fear of the word “no” until you get the answer you want. Yes, it’s inconvenient and humbling to make those calls, but don’t forget what you’ll get out it- free stuff! Most people won’t bother making even one phone call. Remember- all you need is just one “yes”.
