Explore materials and everyday items as heat conductors or heat insulators during your heat energy unit plan with this cut-and paste worksheet.

Heat Conductors vs Heat Insulators

Heat conductors and heat insulators differ in their ability to transfer or resist heat flow. Understanding their differences is essential in everyday situations and when learning about heat energy.

An experienced teacher has created this cut-and-paste worksheet to help students understand the fundamental concept of heat conductors and heat insulators and differentiate between materials and objects in our everyday lives. Students are provided with a list of things, and they need to sort these objectives into either Professor Conductors tools or Professor Insulators tools.

Some of the different materials include:

Aluminum foil, wood, glass, metal spoons, coins, cooking pot, paper clip, pencil, ceramic teapot, metal tray, BBQ grill

Learning About Heat Energy (Thermal Energy)

Here are some topics that can be covered in heat energy in the classroom.

  • Heat transfer – explore heat transfer such as conduction, convection, and radiation.
  • Thermal properties – dive into the characteristics of materials as conductors and insulators.
  • Heat sources  – investigate the originals of heat energy.
