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.
Use a temperature sensor to explore temperature changes, to observe the property of temperature, and to learn that temperature is a measure of how hot or cold something is compared to a standard scale.
To understand that temperature is a measurable property of matter, students:
- Explore temperature changes by the use of graphs and meters for measuring temperature.
- Guess which places in the classroom and around the school will be warm and which places will be cool.
- Check guesses with a temperature sensor.
- Compare the range of warm and cool places inside and outside.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Allows students to conduct all three measurements simultaneously and continuously. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
