    Exploring Physical Phenomena: Summary of Equipment and Supplies for Unit 4
    When used For instructor and demonstrations For each group of 3 For each student
    Unit 4
    Question 4.1 Diagnostic Questions about climate change
        U4H2 Diagnostic question about climate change
    Question 4.4. Exploring “seeing” with infrared radiation   Thermal camera or simulation of one via computer such as Mac Photo Booth: Thermal For each
    pair of students:
    Slinky to model wave motion (reviewing Unit 3)
    Question 4.7 Modeling the greenhouse effect: 2 plastic bins (shoe size)
    2 rulers,
    2 lamps,
    2 moist towels,
    2 thermometers (regular, liquid or digital probes),
    plastic wrap (to cover 1 bin)
    If feasible, provide demo equipment for each group instead of doing a demo  
    Question 4.11 Modeling effect on rising sea levels of melting ice on land vs in water   2 trays or one large tray like a cookie sheet,
    2 frozen dinner trays,
    1 flat rock,
    (If feasiable, blue) ice cubes to put on rock in 1 dinner tray,
    (If feasible, blue) water to fill trays to the brim,
    Paper towels if needed
     
    Question 4.14 Modeling changing processes: falling ball and melting glaciers   Motion detector connected to laptop (for example, https://www.vernier.com/products/sens ors/motion-detectors/go-mot/
    ($119)
