Summary:This lesson from the DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy can be adapted for all grades levels K-12 and provides instructions for building a solar oven from a pizza box and other inexpensive materials. The oven will not generate enough heat to bake something, but it will become hot enough to warm up treats such as cookies and s'mores. Use the model to show students how solar energy works.
