The guiding question for this activity is,“How does energy cook food?” Students use heat lamps to cook their s’mores. The science behind the activity provides more detail on heat and how energy is transferred from one object to another because of a difference in temperature. The type of heat transferred by lamps is radiation. Students will learn about heat energy and temperature. Before beginning this activity, we recommend you read Chapters 9 and 11 which are in this book selection. Chapter 9 is an overview of the section and introduces the format used to present ideas for Family Science Night activities. Chapter 11 features activities that we believe to be at an intermediate level. A materials list, references, safety notes, standards, and teacher background information are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, Preface, Acknowledgments, About the Authors, Introduction, and Index..
