Challenge your students to show what they know about the characteristics of conductors with this 2-page conduction worksheet.
This worksheet is best used as independent practice after your conductors and insulators lesson for students to demonstrate they understand the concepts behind the conduction of thermal energy.
In addition to individual student work time, this conduction worksheet can be used for:
- whole-class review (via smartboard)
- partner or small group work
- exit ticket activity
Conduction Worksheet Scaffolding and Extension Tips
Fast Finishers can show they understand the concept by listing other materials they identify as good conductors.
If students are having trouble with the lesson, display an example of a conductor on the board as a reference point. Students might also benefit from partner work or small group review of the concepts.
