Enough apparatus and materials are supplied to allow eight groups of students to conduct the ex-periments simultaneously. When all the subexperiments are conducted in the suggested se-quence, they form a basis for a learning unit on heat, heat storage, temperature, phase transition (states of matter), heat of fusion, and latent heat. These instructions provide explanatory notes and ideas for further study.

The experiment comprises four subexperiments:
• Water as a heat store – Not only the tea gets cold
• Water as an effective heat store – Water can stay hot longer if …
• Heat for cold fingers – Is the heat pack a heat store?
• How the heat pack stores heat – A salt that changes between solid and liquid states

Notes:
• Observe the safety information in the instructions as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
• All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.
