Learning with S'MORES
Central Elementary
Submitted by: Mrs. Van Horn

Mrs. Lairds students at Central Elementary finished their camp unit by experimenting with S'MORES. Students read a story about summer camp and conducted an experiment to determine whether or not the sun could be used to melt marshmallows. We built an “oven” from a cardboard box using foil, plastic wrap and black construction paper. Students placed their s’mores outside and later evaluated the results of the experiment. Students observed that their marshmallows did not melt but also noticed that it was a cloudy day. Everyone is hoping to repeat the experiment on a sunnier day to see if we have different results. Students loved the investigation and the learning.
