A practical write-up template, for a practical in which students investigate the relationship between heat and temperature. Also some notes for teachers running the activity. Students try to add the same amount of heat, using a Bunsen burner, to two different amounts of water, and measure the effec More…t on the temperatures. I allowed them to plan it however they wanted to, checking only that their methods were safe. I let them make their own mistakes - I think this made the activity more interesting for the students, and it allowed for differentiation by outcome.
