In this two-part lesson, learners discover how large bodies of water can serve as a heat source or sink at different times and how proximity to water moderates climate along the coast. The activities' combination of laboratory investigation, map study, and graphing applies different learning styles and provides practice in important science processes. Less

This activity (on page 2 of the PDF) is a full inquiry investigation into absorption and reflection of radiant energy. In order to build a house that keeps a dog as cool possible in the heat, learners set up an experiment to find out if paint color effects temperature. Learners will paint shoe boxes with different colors. Then, they set thermometers inside to take initial readings and measure how the temperature of each box changes after 20 minutes under a heat lamp, comparing the sets of readings in a simple bar graph when theyäóťre done.

Learners will read or listen to a story about two sisters, Marisol and Sofia, as they explore the Sun's role in the water cycle. Additionally, numerous extension resources are included in the accompanying educator guide, such as suggestions for no-cost language arts activities, links to further science activities, a book walk cue chart to guide classroom discussion before, during, and after the story, a graphic organizer, and alignments to the National Science Education Standards (NSES) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Students use a calorimeter made of common materials to demonstrate that energy can be measured and converted from one form to another. Hydrocarbons, such as paraffin, contain stored chemical energy; food contains stored chemical energy. The activity uses a raw potato, a nut, a candle, an aluminum drink can, a thermometer, and a balance scale. A data sheet is included in the resource. The investigation supports material presented in chapter 1, "What is Energy?" in the textbook, Energy Flow, part of Global System Science (GSS), an interdisciplinary course for high school students that emphasizes how scientists from a wide variety of fields work together to understand significant problems of global impact.
