This is a rubric and assignment sheet for a differentiation project on a Solar Oven. This is a great STEM project to end the year with. This is about a 5-7 day project. The first day, I allow groups to research on computers and choose their 2-5-8 choices. Then I give 2 days to build, 2 days to experiment, and 1 day to work on their reflections. My 8th grade students had a lot of fun and even ate some yummy marshmallows!
I used marshmallows, Pizza Rolls, hotdogs, and eggs for this experiment. S'more work best for a 45 minute class period.
