See What Other Teachers Are Saying . . .

My second graders were totally engaged in planning and making their solar ovens. Now we just need a sunny day to try them out!

A wonderful hands-on unit for my class. They became immersed in their learning and I have nothing but high praise for the work!

I love this adaptation of a solar oven in a smaller box. This will be easier to manage for a full class.

Great project. Easy for students to understand and follow directions. My students have already used an oatmeal solar over to cook hot dogs. Those ovens were made for them. This will be a great next step. I also love the extension ideas given in this product to help students take the next step on their own.
