Heat and Cookies

We've been exploring heat in science. We read a book about heat and its sources and then created a circle map.

We discussed with our partners what happened in our popcorn experiment. Then we passed around sugar cookie dough to explore. We illustrated what our cookie dough looked like in our science journals and watched a short video clip about heat causing change on Discovery Streaming while our cookies baked.

 When they came out of the oven we looked at our cookies and discussed what changes we observed. Through interactive writing (where the students and I share the marker) we created a tree map to record our observations before and after heat. Then students illustrated what our cookies looked like after being heated in the oven.
