PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson is compatible with the Kindergarten Next Generation Science standard* K-PS3-1, 2, where students will “[m]ake observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface [and] use tools and materials to design and build a structure that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on an area, ie umbrellas, canopies, tent.”

This lesson really makes little scientists out of students! It begins by introducing the topic of microclimates and introduces students to a data table. It then teaches students how to take the data they collect and turn it into a bar graph. It introduces students to a thermometer and the temperature units, Fahrenheit and Celsius. It then teaches students how to use their new skills to build a structure to protect them from the heat of the sun.

Here is what’s included in the 26-page lesson:

-Clickable table of contents

-Teacher materials list and notes

-A Next Generation Science Standards* Poster stating “I can…” or “I understand…” statements aligned with the standards
