Pass out the nuclear reactor diagram/worksheet. Help students label the different parts of the reactor. Then, give them each a red and blue colored pencil. Have them color in the parts of te different water loops that contain liquid water blue, and the parts that contain steam red. This will help them understand how the radioactive water is contained, and how heat is transferred from one loop to another.
