In this term’s science unit the class has been learning about heat.
They have investigated how heat can be produced in many ways and can move from one object to another, the connection between the gain or loss of heat by an object and change in the temperature, and how heat can be transferred through direct contact or from a distance.
The have also explored the difference between heat and temperature, how a thermometer works and what is an insulator.
They have created PowerPoints containing much of what they have learnt. These can be found on the grade 4 blogs. Below are two examples made by teams of grade 3 students.
