Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Students can work individually or in groups of 3 or 4 to create a solar oven out of a pizza box. Students are trying to figure out the best way to make a solar oven in order to melt the chocolate and marshmallow in the S’more. Students will be given a group of objects and tell them the basis of how to create a solar oven. The oven will need to be placed in direct sunlight for most of the day. This experiment works best on a very hot, sunny day.

Investigating the Water Cycle: Evaporation
Read the Fine Print
Rating
5.0 stars
Overview:

In this water cycle activity, students investigate the evaporation process by participating in an outdoor evaporation experiment held on the school grounds. Students will determine where evaporation takes place the fastest and how nature and humans can affect the process. Observations will be done and data is recorded in each student's science notebook so that the process can be discussed and analyzed.

Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

In this lesson, students make observations that things in direct sunlight are warmer than things that are not in as much sunlight. Also, they may notice that there may be more heat near asphalt, brick, or cement because heat can be stored and radiated from these, also.

Our Friend, The Sun
Read the Fine Print
Rating
4.0 stars
Overview:

In this lesson, students will understand the role of the sun as a source of heat on Earth as they participate in two activities: Solar Panning and Greenhouse Model. Students will discover the effects of the sun's heat energy by measuring the temperature of pans of water left in a sunny place over a long time period, and they will create mini greenhouses using 2 liter bottles of soil to measure how the earth's temperature rises as a result of too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The strength of this lesson can be found in the varied family, extension, differentiation and inquiry-based activities that are included.
