Day 1: Energy!
From sunshine to electricity, we use energy everyday. In this class, we will learn all about different types of energy and where it comes from.  After we learn a few basics, you will construct a solar cooker to fix your snacks.

Day 2: Electricity and Solar Cookers
On day two, we will continue with our energy theme and learn about electricity. We will make a switch board light, and once again, we will cook snacks on our solar cookers!

Day 3: Caves
You will need a shoe box for today's activity! We will make a cave diorama to learn the different formations of caves. We will also learn about the different types of animals that live in caves!
