PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Challenge: Here’s another Earth Day challenge all about using the sun for warming a treat! Your students will love this! This challenge is part of the Earth Series and it's perfect for Earth Day. However, you can use this any day of the year - as long as it's sunny outside!

Note; This challenge may be purchased in a money-saving bundle!

In this challenge students will be using materials to design a box oven that will absorb and/or reflect sunlight and create enough heat inside the box to toast a food product. We decided s’mores would be a fun item to try! Students will test their ovens by trying different materials to determine which absorbs heat the best and then they will build the version they think will create the warmest oven. The final oven will be used to heat and toast a s’mores dessert.

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes:
• Boxes- any box will work (we used pizza boxes)
• Tape- clear or masking
• Black construction paper
• Aluminum foil
• Plastic wrap
• Waxed paper
• Food supplies
• Thermometers
• Straws
• Stop watches -optional
• Sunny Day!

The package specifically includes: cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 6 pages of teacher directions, a constraints list, 4 pages of photographs, one extra Hints page, student lab sheet with sample answers, Science information page, scientific method alternate activity with data recording sheet, and the credits page. The page count listed for this package includes everything.

This challenge will need 1 class session (1 hour) to complete. If the scientific method activity is added it may take two class sessions.

This challenge works perfectly with two other Earth Day packs!
STEM Challenge Earthquake Resistant Building
STEM Challenge Build a Water Pipeline
