- Making an Air Thermometer - an experiment your students could perform under your direct supervision
- Plants help keep your house cool - science experiment This experiment is done in three steps. First you'll want to see if shading your "house" will keep it cooler. Then you'll want to see if painting the "house" different colors outside affects the temperature inside. Third you can combine the colored houses with or without shading.
