Heat is not a particle, but a form of energy - thermal energy or the vibrations/movements of atoms or molecules. So particles themselves can have heat energy. And the more quickly atoms or molecules vibrate, the greater their temperature. To read more about heat energy, we have a page on Thermodynamics here: https://www.livescience.com/50776-thermodynamics.html
