Albedo is the amount of the incident light or sunlight that is reflected by a surface, typically referring to a surface of Earth or other celestial object. It is a principle of heat transfer, Earth science, and astronomy.
In this lab, students experiment with different albedo surfaces to measure ice melt. Student sheet comes with:
-space to write hypothesis materials
Teacher sheet includes:
-Teacher tips & tricks with numerous modification suggestions
Works great for Thermodynamics and pairs well with Thermal Energy Vocabulary Insulation Lab Analysis
, Thermal Mass Analysis
Can be added to Climate Change Bundle
for an enhanced climate unit too!
Teaching reflection and refraction? Pair this lab with Build a Telescope Lab: Reflection and Refraction Fun!
