Sixth grade science students were introduced to the problem of penguin habitat loss due to the melting of the ice caps.  They will be asked to develop a “habitat” for penguins to live in, when relocated to a warmer climate.  In order to do this, students are learning about heat and how it moves through conduction, convection and radiation.  They will experiment with different types of materials to see which materials will allow the least amount of heat transfer.  They’ll gather and analyze data. They will ultimately be working to develop and create a penguin habitat based on their acquired knowledge of heat transfer and insulators.
