Sorry about that! We fixed the file and you should now be able to view all of it.

Unable to actually read activity.....did something change?  Can anyone else read the activity?  (I was only able to see the first two pages)

Meghan Wilson, Hartford High School

This is a very good, low cost laboratory experimental introduction to the physics of heat that students should enjoy.
Mike Wyss, UAB

This activity requires students to use inquiry to create a model. The comparison to homes around the world is a great way to bring other cultures into the lesson.
