Bring On the Heat
Thermally sensitive paper can be used to create some stunning artistic effects. This activity is a fantastic exploration of a thermally sensitive chemical reaction.
Grades Covered: 3 through 8
Subject Covered: Physical Science
- Chemical Reactions
- Transfer of Energy
Idea Sheets are cross-referenced to subjects listed in the Common Core, Next Generation Science Standards, and California Content Standards.
Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. ||Next Generation Science Standards||Grade 4||Physical Science||Energy
- Make observations & measurements to identify materials based on their properties. [Examples of properties: color, hardness, reflectivity, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, response to magnetic forces, & solubility; density is not intended as an identifiable property.]||Next Generation Science Standards||Grade 5||Physical Science||Matter and its Interactions
- Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred. [Examples:burrning sugar or steel wool, fat reacting with sodium hydroxide, mixing zinc with HCl.]||Next Generation Science Standards||Middle School||Physical Science||Matter and Its Interactions
