Grade K. In 10 lessons spanning 14 class sessions, students solve 2 problems caused by sunlight warming surfaces. In lessons 1 through 7, students solve the problem of a playground surface that is too hot to sit on during recess. To better understand the problem, in lessons 2 and 3 students investigate the phenomenon of the warm playground and figure out that sunlight can warm surfaces. In the design challenge (lessons 8 through 10), students work more independently to design a solution to the problem of a person who gets warm while out in sunlight. Module materials are available as a 1-use module (item #518701), 1-use refurbishment set (item #518704), 3-use module (item #518701U3), 3-use refurbishment set (item #518704U3), and student reader (item #518703, #518705, #518705A, #518705SP, or #518705ASP).
