Energy - Hot And Cold
If you're going outside in the cold it's a good idea to wrap up warm!

Energy - Hot And Cold

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with heat energy and hot and cold temperatures.

Heat is a type of energy. It is not nice to be too cold. It is nice to be warm. But being too hot can be a bad thing. At school you will have learned that we measure how hot or cold it is by taking the temperature. We use thermometers to measure the temperature. These questions are all about being hot and cold, about temperature and about heat energy.
