Extra credit!:

Check out a solar oven for a weekend with good weather. (No rain or high 
winds.)

To do so, YOU must write a small note that says you have permission, then 
have
your parent sign it.
Be picked up Friday after school and dropped off Monday morning. (Ovens 
are
too big to go on a bus.)





Experiment baking something. For a review of instructions, see video at:


www.sunoven.com

Also, sample recipes are there too.


Some easy ones include soup, corn bread, cinnamon rolls, pizza,etc.
Always "preheat", bake longer than a regular, and use a thermometer to be 
sure
any meat is cooked completely.



Turn in the oven and a paragraph about your cooking. Even failures are 
worth 
extra credit. 



Have your parents sign it. 



OR, you can take a picture of you and the E6 water bottle at a unique 
place. 
Email it to Mr. H. so we can add it to the places the E6 water bottle has 
traveled.


1 extra credit assignment maximum this quarter.
