Students will participate in a hands-on exploration to observe how varying materials absorb solar energy differently.
In this activity, students will observe how ice melts on wood and metal blocks, and they will draw conclusions about how heat conducts through different materials.
In this activity, students will build a simple solar cooker. They will make observations and qualitatively describe the melting rate of a piece of chocolate in the cooker.
In this activity students will examine fruits and vegetables in order to figure out which ones are really fruits,and what types of fruits they really are.
In this activity, students will create a simple model of Earth as a magnet. They will use the model to explore the use of a compass for navigation.
