Description

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.

Motivation: Superior (3)

This resource promotes critical thinking (and/or communication, collaboration, creativity), because it includes an application process where a product is created, data is collected, and the product itself is then judged on it's effectiveness. This process enhances content and instruction.

Very enjoyable lab and one that I could use in Social Studies to illustrate the importance of subsistence farming, food production as it relates to the destruction of the rain forests. That would be a way to use this in a high school setting. You could even get students to build these sun oven, and donate the ovens as a part of community service.
