Heat transfer is a fairly simple topic to teach in science. There aren’t many vocabulary words to learn and the content isn’t complicated. It generally only took me a week to finish this unit, but that didn’t mean that it would be any less engaging! These 3 activities are student favorites and will go beyond reading an article about heat transfer. Have your students apply what they’ve learned!
#1 Create a Comic
Students can create a comic strip using vocabulary. This engaging activity allows students to be creative and show what they’ve learned.
#2 Kahoot! Quiz
Get out your devices – it’s time to play Kahoot!
Kahoot! is a free game-based learning platform that is perfect for the classroom when you have enough devices for all students or when students can pair up. This was one of my favorite ways to review with students before state testing.

#3 Sort Examples of Heat Transfer
This hands-on sorting activity requires your students to use their knowledge of the three types of heat transfer.
Three activity options are included for easy differentiation — a cut and paste sort, color by type, and a Google Slides™ interactive option that you can assign to students through Google Classroom™.
