Today we introduced the topic of heat, particularly as it relates to chemistry. The focus of the lesson was to get students to visualize heat as motion that is present within atoms and molecules. But because atoms are too small to see, this can be a tough idea to imagine. We went through a PowerPoint (posted below) that defined heat, explained how it is measured, and presented three different ways that heat can be transferred.
