Sulfuric Acid into Water and Ice  
When sulfuric acid is mixed with water the temperature rises. When sulfuric acid is added to ice, the temperature rises at first, but as the ice melts, the temperature falls.

Endothermic Reaction  
Solid barium hydroxide octahydrate (Ba(OH)2*8H2O) and ammonium thiocyanate (NH4SCN) are mixed in a beaker, which is then placed on a few drops of water on a small board. The reaction that occurs is highly endothermic.

Thermochemistry : HeatCapacityLiq (4 Variations)
100 g of water (c=4.184 J/g.oC), 100 g of ethanol (c=2.46 J/g.oC), 100 g of carbon tetrachloride (c=0.861 J/g.oC), and 100 g of ethylene glycol (c=2.42 J/g.oC) at 50oC were each placed into a separate coffee cup calorimeter and the temperature recorded. The temperature of the surroundings was 20oC. After one hour the temperature of which substance would have changed by the largest amount? Assume that the rate of heat transfer from the coffee cup to the surroundings was the same in each case.

Some Like It Hot, Some Like It Cold  Robert G. Silberman
Students combine liquids and solids in a calorimeter and use a thermometer to determine if the reaction mixture gets hotter or colder. The goal is to find a combination of a liquid and a solid that could serve as the basis for a cold pack of the type used for athletic injuries.

Chemistry at a Science Museum  Robert G. Silberman, Charles Trautmann, and Susan M. Merkel
Interactive chemistry activities developed for science museums are described and discussed. The activities are specifically designed for young museum visitors (610 years old). Each activity involves a challenge problem that can be successfully mastered by working with some simple chemicals.

Friction ? A Hot Topic!?  
When you rub your hands together, the action of scraping the surface of your skin back and forth against each other causes ,the molecules in your skin to move a little faster. The faster that molecules move, the higher the temperature. So the friction of rubbing your hands together makes them feel warmer.
