Disappointed

I've had other heat sensitive material change more. I could barely notice the change. I would not purchase these again.

Some colors are more dramatic than others, but still a "hot" item!

These pencils are very cool. The kids spent time just getting them to change. They are expensive but a very high quality. No one broke their lead for a week!

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

2-PS1-1

Students can use Heat Sensitive Pencils to plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.

2-PS1-4

Students can use Heat Sensitive Pencils to collect data to construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.

4-PS3-2

Students can use Heat Sensitive Pencils to make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by heat currents.

MS-PS3-3

Students can use Heat Sensitive Pencils to apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.

MS-PS3-4

Students can use Heat Sensitive Pencils for an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample.

DCI-MS/PS3.A: Definitions of Energy.

The temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of particles of matter. The Heat Sensitive Pencils create a thermal print when acted on by an object, such as your hand. Each color represents a different temperature.

HS-PS3-4

Students can use Heat Sensitive Pencils to plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that the transfer of thermal energy when two components of different temperature are combined within a closed system results in a more uniform energy distribution among the components in the system (Second Law of Thermodynamics).

Suggested Science Idea(s)

4-PS3-2

Students can place their hands on the Heat Sensitive Pencils to observe the transfer of heat energy to the surface of the temperature sensitive material. Each color represents a different temperature.

MS-PS3-3

Each color represents a different temperature as students test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.

MS-PS3-4

Students can use the Heat Sensitive Pencils for an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred by different objects.

HS-PS3-4

Students can use the Heat Sensitive Pencils for an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred by different objects.
