Sixth Grade Solar Ovens Sixth Grade Solar Ovens

Sixth Graders in Mrs. Noga's class researched and learned about the greenhouse effect. The goal was to use the materials they were given to build an oven which would use the greenhouse effect and generate enough heat to melt their s'mores. The students were given a box, black paper to absorb the heat, aluminum foil to reflect the sun, and clear plastic wrap to trap the heat in their oven. Groups sketched how they were going to use the materials and then were able to build. 

The ovens were put outside from 9:30 to 1:30 to bake. When students brought their ovens in, they had time to check on their s'mores and reflect on the project.
