6. Standards (5E)

6.1. ENGAGE: What can you bake?

6.2. EXPLORE: Students will be placed into groups and then given a variety of materials to choose from to form a solar oven. They will design their oven first, then they will build an oven and place "oven foods" inside to test the effectiveness.

6.2.1. Standard 1: The student will listen actively to the ideas of others in order to acquire new knowledge.

6.3. EXPLAIN: Students will be asked to type a reflection of their experience and what did/did not work about their oven.

6.3.1. Standard 1: The student will express his or her thinking and ideas in a variety of writing genres.

6.4. ELABORATE: Explain how the oven reflects Heat Absorption of the Earth. Have students read scientific articles about Earth (global warming).

6.4.1. Standard 4: The student will analyze text for expression, enjoyment, and response to other related content areas.
