Class experience

Day 1: Leaf Chromatography: This demonstration will demonstrate that multiple color pigments exist in leaves. They will learn that in 
the fall, the amount of chlorophyll decreases allowing the other color pigments to show. They will also briefly discuss the role of chlorophyll in photosynthesis. 
Day 2: S'More Solar Ovens: Students will learn more about radiation and the heat transferred from sunlight. They will make their own oven solar out of an old pizza or shoe box. This class does require the oven to be made in advance. Directions for construction of the box will be provided. Then students will then use their oven to conduct a short experiment on whether they can cook their S'more in under 10 minutes. If it is not possible for your student to be outside for this project, or if weather or time of day is an issue, indoor alternatives are possible. 
Day 3: Live Trap Building: Students will learn about the engineering design process by using random kitchen items to design a trap prototype. They will attempt to "catch" a small toy car as their prey. 
Day 4: Microorganisms in the Water: Students will learn how and why they need to filter water, even tough it looks clear. 
Day 5: Who Left That Print?: Students will view different animal prints and learn how to identify animals based on their tracks. 
Students will need the following materials for this 5 day course: 
Day 1: Pencil
Day 2: S'more Solar Oven Building: 1 pizza box (any size), ruler, pencil, scissors, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, black construction paper, masking tape, (if no sunlight access, will need a desk lamp for experiment). 
Day 3: Trap Building: Students will choose their own materials from things they have in their home. These items do NOT need to be in the following list. Students will be designing their own trap, so they can use materials that they already have access to. Some items may include:  paper plates, plastic spoons, string, popsicle sticks or cardboard pieces, Elmer's glue, scissors, plastic straws, toilet paper tubes, plastic cups, construction paper, toy car (hot wheels)
Day 4: Pencil
Day 5: Pencil, colored pencils, or markers
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will need parental assistance when building their solar pizza oven. It will involve cutting and taping cardboard which may be difficult for some students. This will be done at the end of day 1 and should be ready for day 2.
