Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Turning Up The Heat - Section 4: Wrap Up


This was a very exciting lesson. The students enjoyed watching me melt the different objects in the classroom and observing the changes. I do wish they could have had the opportunity to use the hair dryer to melt the items themselves. Unfortunately, the county only supplies one hairdryer per classroom.

In hindsight, I would also like to spend more time on reviewing the safety procedures when using the hair dryer. Although the students did not use the hair dryer, many of them wanted to recreate the experiment at their home. Creating a safety procedures resource for the students to take home would have definitely been beneficial for the students.
