Making Solar Ovens
In 6th grade, I challenged the students to make a solar oven using a pizza box. This was to illustrate the transfer of heat using radiation, conduction, and convection. Students researched different designs online and then had to come up with their own design that would be better than what they saw online. To test their ovens, students put a s'more in their ovens and recorded the temperature at varying times (quantitative observations) and observed the marshmallow and chocolate melting (qualitative observations). And, of course, they ate the s'mores because SCIENCE IS FUN AND DELICIOUS!

Working With Solutions
Our 5th grade class was learning about mixtures. More precisely, solutions. A solution is a special type of mixture where one of the substances is completely dissolved in the other. We wondered what would happen if there was too much solute (the substance that is dissolved) for the solvent (the substance that does the dissolving). So, we combined 2 cups of water (solvent) with 6 cups of sugar and noticed that all the sugar was not dissolved. This is known as a super saturated solution. We then heated the solution to boiling and then all of the sugar dissolved. We wondered, "what will happen when the solution goes back to room temperature?" Each student had a glass, two drops of their favorite food coloring, and some of the solution poured into their glasses. They placed a skewer in the glasses and let them sit for 4 days. When we checked the solutions again, the sugar that could not be dissolved at room temperature had crystallized on the stick. We made rock candy!
