With last week getting up to almost 90 degrees, Ms. Wintrich’s 1st-grade class at Brown Elementary took advantage of the last day of summer. Her class created solar oven s’mores. With the heat of the sun and the direct sun rays hitting the black paper and aluminum foil, their s’mores were cooking in the solar ovens outside with just the sunlight! This science experiment was a perfect experience for her students to learn the science standard that the sun is the principal source of energy. They learned all about solar power and how sunlight affects the earth. With a hands-on, real-life experience, this lesson about the sun will last a lifetime!
