1. Topic-
Heat and Energy
2. Content-
Investigating the heat mechanical and electrical machines produce will demonstrate that heat is produced in motion
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
1. Observe simple objects and report observations.
2. Conduct a simple investigation when given directions.
3.Pose questions about objects, events, and processes.
4. Objectives-
1. Students will observe machines and report in journal.
2. Students will be told to go around school and get temperature of machines.
3. Student will answer questions about their predictions and findings.
5. Materials and Aids-
Graph paper
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1. Lesson will begin with reviewing where heat comes from and how it is produced.
2. Students will talk about ideas of what makes a machine hot? And what machines would be hotter and not and why?

B. Development-

1.Students will walk around school finding mechanical and electrical machines that they think produce heat when operating
2. When getting back in classroom students should draw in science journal what machines they saw and divide them into mechanical and electrical
3. Have the students decide on three machines from each category
4. Students should then predict the temperature of the machine

C. Practice-

1.Students will then go around and get temperatures of the machines
2.Class will have discussion on if their predictions were right and discuss what machine had the coolest and hottest temperature and why?

3.Also talk about how long machines were running and if the machine had a light too?
4. Together in small groups graph on a large piece of paper mechanical and electrical that are found out of magazine.

D. Independent Practice-

Students will then graph results

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1.Student that would have trouble walking around school would be with teacher
2. Students that have trouble working in group will work independently.


F. Checking for understanding-

Have student draw 2 mechanical and 2 electrical machines in their science journal and check for accuracy.

G. Closure-

Display charts in classroom and discuss as a class their findings
7. Evaluation-
Demonstrate that mechanical and electrical machines produce heat and sometimes light.
