Featured in PASCO’s Elementary School Science Teacher Guide
Features 29 inquiry based labs designed for elementary students and coordinated with the standards for life, earth and physical sciences.
Dew and Frost
Use a fast-response temperature sensor and a model simulate the weather conditions responsible for the formation of dew and frost.
To understand this content, students:
- Create dew and frost on the outside of a beaker and measure their temperatures.
- Duplicate dew and frost formation conditions inside a terrarium and measure the dew point.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Allows students to conduct all three measurements simultaneously and continuously. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
Measures barometric pressure, relative altitude, absolute and relative humidity, dew point, and temperature. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
