PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this fun, minds-on experiment, which is aligned to Next Generation Science Standard MS-PS3-3 (or 07-PS3-3 if you're in Kentucky), students will learn how to identify a thermal insulator. They will also be required think critically and apply their knowledge of thermal energy transfer to identify why Styrofoam is an insulator.

Students will:
• Create a hypothesis based off of an observation and question
• Perform an experiment by following procedures
• Record data
• Synthesize data into a line graph
• Answer 6 analysis questions based on Bloom's Taxonomy

This experiment can be done as a demonstration or by students in small groups.
Materials/equipment needed per experiment:
→ 3 ice cubes
→ 1 piece of wood
→ 1 piece of Styrofoam (or similar)
→ 1 piece of metal (baking pans work great)
→ 1 digital scale for quick measurements
→ 1 stopwatch
→ Paper towels
