Explore data on algae blooms by creating a heat map revealing changes in algae over time. Discuss the role that humans have on algae growth.
This simple experiment can be used as a way to introduce the scientific method. Students design an experiment to test which materials are the best insulators by measuring heat loss. The materials are simple, and the experiment doesn’t take very long. They will need two beakers per group, a thermometer, and hot water. Also, a…
