Topic 1 Using Energy from Heat

The Energy Story 20 chapters about the different forms of energy and the Story - Devoured by the Dark

Topic 2 Measuring Temperature

Min/Max Thermometer When recording daily temperatures, a min/max thermometer is commonly used. This module helps you determine the current, minimum, and maximum daily temperature.

Topic 3 The Particle Model, Temperature, and Thermal Energy

The Particle Model This Revision Bite is about how you can use the idea of particles to explain the properties of solids, liquids and gases. It covers the topics of; solids, liquids, gases, diffusion, expansion and contraction.
How Thermometers Work
Temperature Converter Telus2Learn provides a temperature converter in its Teen Locker site.

Topic 4 Expansion and Contraction

Expansion and Contraction Mystery

Topic 5 The Particle Model and Changes of State

Heating Curve For Water A Flash demonstration of the changes of state for water.

Topic 6 Transferring Energy

New Brunswick Power Plant Virtual Tour

DIY Energy Renovation - determine the most likely sources of thermal energy loss in this older house and come up with ways to conserve energy.

Topic 7 Sources of Thermal Energy

Topic 8 Conserving Our Fossil Fuels

The SEEDS Energy Literacy Series explores five energy sources -- their uses, technologies, and associated issues. “Virtual Tours” use pictures and an interactive map of Canada to take you to sites where energy is obtained and produced. Graphics and animations show energy technologies in use. Issues, impacts, and outcomes examine some of the scientific, technological, societal, environmental, economic, and political issues associated with the energies.
Oil Sands on the Web Tour the Oil Sands Discovery Centre and find out how the oil is extracted from the tar sands.
Fuel Economy Find and compare gas mileage (MPG), greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution ratings, and safety information for new and used cars and trucks.
