The rate of heat loss


Grade 9 students compared the rate of heat loss in different size penguins during their lab session. To simulate this example, they used different sized beakers and recorded the decrease in temperature in each beaker within 15 minutes. With the collaboration of the design teacher, students also learned how to create a chart on Excel. Students will analyze their data and understand the relationship between animal size and heat loss to understand challenges bigger animals face.
