Energy and Combustion Teacher Guide (pdf, 1 MB)

A printable document for teachers with background information, safety, materials, procedures, and facilitation support.


Understanding the rate of ignition and combustion of common household items helps make safer spaces. In the Energy and Combustion Investigation, students are guided to build a calorimeter then make direct observations of the timing, behavior, and smoke of different fuels as they burn.

This teacher guide provides background information for educators as well as support to facilitate the investigation.

Be sure to explore the video showing this classroom investigation and related student guide.
