Lesson Overview

In this lesson, Willow and the Quinks learn about temperature and how to measure it using a thermometer. Quazar, Neutrina and Flux also explore how the sun warms Earth’s land, water and air and visit with engineers who are installing solar panels to capture the power of the sun to produce electricity.


The kids LOVED the discovery guide activity where they got to test out the ice cubes melting with the various colors. This turned into dividing up into teams of which color they thought would melt it fastest.
