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 understand which materials conduct heat and which don't, and why they do or don't.
To understand this content, students:
- Classify clothing or fabrics according to the type of fiver with which they are made.
- Measure the temperature change in a cup of hot water exposed to the air for five minutes.
- Design and implement an insulated covering for a test tube with hot water.
- Measure the temperature change in a control test tube and in an insulated test tube of hot water, each for three minutes.
Sensors / Equipment Used:
Allows students to conduct all three measurements simultaneously and continuously. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
