### Concept Cartoons: Change of State and Insulation

The idea of a concept cartoon, can be used to assess children’s ideas at the start or end of a topic. Look at the snowman’s coat concept cartoons, which misconceptions do you think children will have about thermal insulation? Think about the next science topic that you will be teaching and find out the...

### Concept Cartoons: Change of State and Insulation

This concept cartoon explores student's ideas about heat and insulation. A common misconception is that some materials have the property of making things warm. In this case because we have put coats on to keep warm there is a tendency to believe that the coat will also make the snowman warm so that it will melt...
