A Tasty Science Experiment

SolarOvenSmoreClassHow to prove that the sun provides heat? That was the question that the first graders set out to explore one sunny day in May. The students helped to build a solar oven using a pizza box, aluminum foil, black paper and plastic wrap. We also needed a dowel to prop the lid at the correct angle so that the sun's rays would reflect and heat the oven. We waited for a sunny day and as soon as we had one we made s'mores! Did the oven get hot? Oh, yes! The marshmallows were nice and squishy and the chocolate was melted. Yum! A tasty science experiment proving that the sun does indeed produce heat.
