Product Description
"The Coldest Drink"- Inquiry-Based Lab & Design Challenge (Thermal energy)

This is a really fun inquiry-based lab/design challenge lab that asks students to develop their own procedure for creating the "Coldest Drink."  

Students are provided a beaker with distilled water, and the rest of the design is up to them.  Nothing can be added to the water itself.  The students can do anything (within safety limits) to the outside of the beaker.  

The teacher can supply common, inexpensive things that lots of students will likely want to use.  With teacher approval, students can bring other things like coffee cans, instant cold packs, etc.   Students work in groups, using a temperature probe to carefully measure and track each others's progress and honesty.  

This lab aligns with the NGSS.  

This is the elaborated 5-page student handout that steps students through designing a lab of their own, including a creation of a procedure, sketching of particle motion, data collection, and graphing their data.  

Feel free to look through the preview!  Enjoy!
