6th Grade Science

The sixth grade has been busy investigating Thermal Energy and Heat. As we explored the transfer of heat, we designed  solar oven and tried our hand at making s’mores. We used pizza boxes collected from our cafeteria and added aluminum foil and plastic wrap. We set our ovens up on the field and worked on other subjects as we waited for our s’mores to cook. We had mixed results. The chocolate melted quickly but the marshmallows did not get soft. We concluded that we should have cooked the s’mores longer or picked a warmer, sunnier day.
