3. Write learning targets or I can statements. When writing ask yourself, “What does this look like in student work?”
*Grade level Performance Standards or Indicators will need to be added to the template prior to the first step. This is a blank template.
Construct and measure the energy efficiency and solar heat gain of a cardboard model house. Use a light bulb heater to imitate a real furnace and a temperature sensor to monitor and regulate the internal temperature of the house. Use a bright bulb in a gooseneck lamp to model sunlight at different times of the year, and test the effectiveness of windows for passive solar heating.
