April 1, 2016
Students were given a handout with the assignment requirements and rubric early this week. This handout is also available on Google Classroom and below. While the assignment does have various components and seems a little overwhelming at first, students should begin by designing and building their solar ovens. With planning on the student's part, it should take no more than an hour or two for them to build their solar ovens at home. Please note that students will have NO time in class to construct their individual ovens. Solar ovens should be constructed entirely at home.
Students have been told, but I want to reassure families that only solar ovens are due on April 15. The paper will be due approximately one week after our picnic as it requires students to reflect on the successes of their designs. Students will have class time following our solar oven picnic to work on the paper.
