Best known as: Former slave turned anti-slavery leader

Name at birth: Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey

Frederick Douglass was a former slave who became one of the great American anti-slavery leaders of the 1800s. Douglass was born into slavery in Maryland but in 1838, at age 20, he escaped to freedom in New York. A few years later he went to work for abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison, travelling and speaking on behalf of Garrison's paper The Liberator. Douglass published his memoir Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave in 1845. Eloquent, smart and determined, Douglass gained fame as a speaker, began his own anti-slavery publications and became a 'conductor' on the Underground Railroad. In later years he became a personal friend of Abraham Lincoln and helped persuade Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation. He also was a strong supporter of women's rights. He is often described as the founder of the American civil rights movement.

Science Vocabulary:  Heat Energy

Heat: is the flow of thermal energy from warmer objects to cooler objects

Thermal energy: the energy of moving particles in matter

Friction: a force that occurs when one object rubs against another object

Temperature: is the measure of how hot or cold something is

Thermometer: is the tool used to measure temperature

Radiation:  the movement of energy by waves.

Solar energy:  energy from the Sun.

Conduction: is the movement of hear within a solid or from one solid to another.

Convection: the way which heat moves through liquids and gases.

Conductor:  any material that heat moves through easily.

Insulator:  any material that does not allow heat to pass through it easily.



Heat is a type of energy. It's measured by temperature. We say objects that have a high temperature are hot and objects with a low temperature are cold.

The temperature of an object is determined by how fast its molecules are moving. The faster the molecules are moving the higher the temperature.

Transferring of Heat

When two items are combined or touching each other, their molecules will transfer energy called heat. They will try to come to a point where they both have the same temperature. This is called equilibrium. Heat will flow from the hotter object to the colder. The molecules in the hotter object will slow down and the molecules in the colder object will speed up. Eventually they will get to the point where they have the same temperature.

This happens all the time around you. For example, when you take an ice cube and put it into a warm soda. The ice cube will become warmer and melt, while the soda will cool down.

Hot Objects Expand

When something gets hotter it will expand, or get bigger. At the same time, when something gets colder it will shrink. This property is used to make mercury thermometers. The line in the thermometer is actually liquid mercury. As the liquid gets hotter, it will expand and rise in the thermometer to show a higher temperature. It's the expansion and contraction due to temperature that allows the thermometer to work.

Heat Conduction

When heat transfers from one object to another, this is called conduction. Some materials conduct heat better than others. Metal, for example, is a good conductor of heat. We use metal in pots and pans to cook because it will move the heat from the flame to our food quickly. Cloth, like a blanket, isn't a good conductor of heat. Because it's not a good conductor, a blanket works well to keep us warm at night as it won't conduct the heat from our bodies out to the cold air.



Math Vocabulary

Division:  is an operation with two numbers. One number tells you how many items you have. The other tells you how many equal shares, or groups, to form or how many to put in each group.

10 ÷ 5 =


Divide means to partition: separate a number into equal groups, to find the number of groups or find the number in each group.

Division sentence: a number sentence with the symbol (÷).  It means to divide.

Divisor:  the number by which the dividend is divided (number of groups).

Dividend:  the number to be divided (number in all).

Quotient:  the answer to a division problem (number in each group).

Number in all                                    Number of groups                            number in each group

             ÷            =


Dividend                                        Divisor                                                     Quotient

Repeated subtraction: subtract equal groups of a number repeatedly until you get to zero.

Inverse operations: operations that undo each other.

Fact family or related facts: a group of related facts that use the same number.

Array: a group of objects arranged in equal numbered rows and equal numbered columns.
