Can we design a house that uses the Sun's energy to keep people warm?

I can...

    • Build, test, and revise a model for a home that uses the Sun’s energy to keep people warm
    • Conduct experiments to learn how different materials change temperature during the day and night, and create a spreadsheet and graph of the results
    • Use what I have learned about materials to create and present a final design for my passive solar home.
