How The World Works

Tuning in of ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œHeatÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â:

The teacher took students out in the sun and they were asked to sit there for some time. Later the teacher took an inquiry in the classroom and asked students about how they felt. Students reflected that they felt hot because of the sun. Later the teacher discussed the heat element and students gave real life examples for the same.

Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Property of heat:

After this teacher discussed the 1st propertyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â that objects expand when heatedÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â.

2. Property: Heat can be transformed from one object to another.
