4. Go! Temp – Temperature Detector Center 1: Learning to Use Go! Temp • Learn how to use a Go! Temp Sensor • Measure the temperature of your hand • How could you change the temperature of your hand? • Measure the temperature of the water in each cup • Explore how to create the letter M and the letter W using the temp probe

5. Go! Temp – Temperature Detector Center 2: Mittens Warm • Find the temperature of your palm • Find the temperature of a mitten • Put the mitten on your hand and find the temperature of your palm with the mitten on • Describe the difference • How do mittens help your hands stay warm?

6. Go! Temp – Temperature Detector Center 3: Baggie Mittens • Predict which materials would make the best insulators • Create a mitten from the plastic baggies and insulation materials • Place your hand in the mitten and find the temperature • Place your mitten on an ice pack and find the temperature of your hand • Compare mittens made of different types of insulation

7. Go! Temp – Temperature Detector Center 4: Sole Purpose • Predict which shoe will have the most friction • Rub the temperature probe across the sole of the shoe & find the temperature • Try different types of shoes • Compare the temperature of the soles of different types of shoes • Which shoes have the lowest and highest frictions?

8. Go! Temp – Temperature Detector Center 5: Cool Reaction! • Fill the cup with 3 teaspoons of vinegar • Record the temperature of the vinegar • Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda • Measure the changing temperature of a reaction between baking soda and vinegar

9. Go! Temp – Temperature Detector Center 6: Cold As Ice • Find the temperature of the water • Add ice to the cup of water & record the temperature • Add two spoonfuls of salt to the ice water • How does salt affect the temperature of the freezing water?

10. Go! Temp – Temperature Detector Center 7: Why Do We Need Thermometers? • Test each cup of water by placing two fingers in each cup for 30 seconds & predict the temperature of each • Measure the temperatures of the water & compare to your predictions • Discuss the importance of thermometers

11. Go! Temp – Temperature Detector Center 8: Comparing Insulators • Predict which cup will be the best insulator (keeps heat in) • Collect temperature data for 10 minutes • Find the difference between the starting and ending temperatures • Which cup is the better insulator? • How does this compare to your predictions?

12. Go! Temp – Temperature Detector Center 9: Design a Thermos • Use the materials to create a thermos • Collect the temperature of the water for 20 minutes • Find the difference between the starting and ending temperatures • How successful was your design?

13. Go! Temp – Temperature Detector Center 10: I’m Melting! • Record the temperature of the water • Add one ice cube and continue to record the temperature as the ice melts • Find the difference between the starting and ending temperatures • Follow the same procedure with a second ice cube • Describe your observations
