The students are given an understanding of the transfer of heat through heat conduction. A metal spoon is heated. The different temperatures of the spoon are demonstrated using pieces of wax, which melt at different rates.

The instructions first include a photo and a list of the required apparatus and materials. Text and pictures explain the preparations for the experiment step by step. Then several assignments are presented: The students should express their guesses, conduct the experiment, and note down their observations.

Information and ideas:
• Observe the safety information in these instructions as well as in the teacher information related to the experiment and discuss them with your students.
• Also observe the applicable safety guidelines for your school.
