Lesson 1: Heat Causes Change
Ask your child to explain how heat can cause change. Let him share specific examples of how things change when heat is applied.
Go outside with your child on a sunny day. Let him stand very still and ask him if he can feel the heat from the sun. Review the fact that his body is absorbing the heat from the sun. Now move to a shady place and ask him to explain the difference in how it feels. Review the fact that the heat caused his body to change.
