By finding different ways to insulate a cardboard "house" warmed by just one 40W light bulb, children explore the difference between the ideas of heat and temperature. Then, using a 100W bulb, they turn the house into an "oven" that can bake cookies at 300- F. Instructional material.
Explore It! is a series of exploratory science experiences for out-of-school programs and elementary school students (ages 8-12), funded by the National Science Foundation and developed by Education Development Center, Inc. Explore It! includes a guide for each project and a special guide for implementing the program. These extended explorations provide an experiential foundation for science concepts associated with basic phenomena and helps develops essential skills for inquiry in the formal context.
