Insulation A First Grade STEM Project
What is Insulation?
Problem: Which material will be the best insulator? -Felt -Packing peanuts -Cardboard -Cotton balls
Hypothesis: (Type your prediction on the Notability App.)
Experiment: Draw the glove your group will create with your assigned material. Construct your group’s glove. Test each glove by inserting a hand and thermometer for 5 minutes. Decide as a class which material is the best insulator. (Will the best insulator be the one with the highest or lowest temperature?) Don’t forget to take pictures during the experiment!
Drawing Conclusions: Which material was the best insulator? Why do you think so?
