A Fun Kid-Friendly Experiment: How Puppies Use Thermal Conduction to Stay Warm
Have a puppy in the house? How about kiddos? Here is a fun experiment to do with your child on a rainy day that will give you both a whole new appreciation for your puppy's brilliant instincts to snuggle up on cold mornings!
Here are the materials you'll need:
Four glass jars
A long thermometer
Large cooking pot
A hammer and nail
A stopwatch or timer
A piece of paper and a pen
The overall goal of the experiment is to track the difference in the water temperature and rate of cooling between a single jar of hot water sitting alone on the counter and three jars of hot water sitting in a group with their sides touching. This exemplifies why puppies and other warm-blooded animals will snuggle up in a group, or huddle to conserve their body heat and stay warm in the winter. When puppies cuddle, they're keeping their body temperatures up through a process called thermal conduction -- when heat is transferred from one object to another through direct contact.
Does your little pup like to snuggle under the covers or stay in bed long after you've had your morning cup of coffee? Well, now you know why! Since dogs, like people, love to stay warm, a fluffy comforter is a great stand-in for a litter of fellow puppies to huddle with.
Have fun with this experiment, and let us know how it went! [source]
