Temperature, Heat, Exothermic, and Endothermic Reactions

Unit 5: Unit 6: Energy
Lesson 2 of 9

Objective: Students will be able to differentiate between temperature and heat as well as exothermic and endothermic reactions through taking notes, performing lab activities, and drawing models.

Big Idea: Temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of molecules and can change as heat flows between objects. This change in heat for chemical reactions can be considered endothermic or exothermic.
