Unit 6: Earth, Sun, and Moon
Lesson 7 of 12

Objective: SWBAT compare how different materials heat up and cool down at different rates and explain how that has implications for life on Earth.

Big Idea: All the surfaces on Earth absorb some of the Sun's energy and give off heat to the air as they cool - but they do it a different rates. At what rates will different materials heat up and cool down? Have your students find out!
