Solar Oven Pizza Box

STEAM ACTIVITY

PIZZA BOX SOLAR OVEN

Teach children with first-hand engineering about solar energy!

We normally see food cooked using gas, charcoal, or wood, but rarely do we see someone using the SUN to cook food!

In this experiment, you get to repurpose your pizza box from Nancy's Pizza in Geneva into a solar oven (we made s'mores in ours)!

Use the PDF linked below from Yumpu to determine a plan to start, scientific process questions to consider, and fun recipe ideas to try in your solar oven!

BOOKSTORE CHALLENGE

Click the link below to get your TASK CARDS.  You will each have the same tasks but you must separate to complete them.

Decide on a specific amount of time needed to complete the tasks and pick a meet up point in Harvey's Tales. You can collect the books or snap a picture of the book/page that meets the task. When you meet up, share your findings with each other!

 

The beautiful thing here is that you are essentially planning future date nights for the two of you! BOOM.

ENTER TO WIN A PRIZE!

Tag us in your photos on social media using @FamiliesOnTheFox and the hashtags #FOTF #FoxyBoxy

Once we see it, we'll enter your name into a drawing at the end of the month for an FOTF snapback hat!
