### Layers of the Atmosphere Noteable

Layers of the Atmosphere Noteable
Student labels the layers of the atmosphere, then looks up clip art to paste into each layer's rectangle that shows what types of objects/phenomenon can be found in that layer (TJ made)

My noteable is based upon a chart found here which includes the clip art (but the clip art was different sizes.)  The only reason I did not use the chart at the above link was because it was extremely color intensive (for printing) and I wanted to bullet the main points for easier review.

### Conduction, Convection, and Radiation

Lesson Plan

### Worksheets

Worksheet (Methods of  Heat Transfer) - Schoolwires.net
Student defines convection, conduction, and radiation, then identifies the method of heat transfer that takes place in illustrations and then written situations.  Really  nice.
An answer key to the first twelve  can be found here

Conduction, Convection, and Radiation Worksheet
Brief matching activity and situations with a different type of heat transfer; student must also give his/her explanation as to why he/she chose the particular type of heat transfer for his/her response; plus other activities.

Convection, Conduction, and Radiation Worksheet
Nice worksheet where student examines a given situation and must tell what type of heat transfer is occurring and why that example is not an example of the other two types of heat transfer.

### Foldables/Noteables

Directions for Heat Transfer Foldable
Describes what information can be included in a foldable on this topic.

TJ Convection, Conduction, and Radiation Noteable
This is my own noteable that I made for my 6th grader.

### Experiments

Cooking popcorn three different ways illustrates the concepts of conduction, convection, and radiation
