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.
How Greenhouse Works - Heat
Use a temperature sensor to measure the heat generated in a model greenhouse by altering the types of material that light passes through.
To understand this content, students:
- Investigate the temperature changes in a closed greenhouse.
- Compare the effects of a change in the transparency of the covering materials in the temperature of the air.
- Compare the effects of a change in the heat delivery mechanism to the greenhouse.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Allows students to conduct all three measurements simultaneously and continuously. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
