Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Step 1: Cut the Bottle (Scissors, Knife)

For this part you want to cut the part of the bottle that right above the label. Then you cut a small line from the bottom of the bottle up about an inch (this makes it easier to put back on). This is the most simplest part of the solar water heater

Step 2: Step 2: THE BOX!!!! (Scissors, Knife)

For this step you want to cut the box to where its a 16x16x16 box. That way it will make it easier to get the tin foil to make energy. With out that, it wouldn't be called the "SOLAR" water heater(Just one question are you paying attention, you know how)

Step 3: Step 3: the Sticky Situation (Glue)

For this step, all you have to do is put glue all over the box (where's that gack/glue group) and this will help with the next step of making are wonderful solar water heater (its 99.9% reliable, trust me, it is). Now on to next step of greatness!

Step 4: Step 4: Solar Panels Are Cheap!?(Tin Foil)

This is most cheapest solar panel ever. All you have to do in this step is put tin foil all over the box and then rub it all down to make it stick, this may take 3 mins to dry then you can move with the solar water heater and heat water.

Step 5: Step 5: the Solar Water Heater(Box, Bottle, 12.oz Can)

This step all you do is put the 12.oz can in the bottle and put the bottle top on the bottle and put in the center of the box. Then your solar water heater is ready to rock and roll and take out side. Put in the must sunniest spot you can see in your back yard, front yard, etc.

Step 6: Step 6: Man Its Hot

This is the final step. When you put it out side wait 2 days then make sure the degrees is about 145*F and then it should have killed all the germs, bacteria, and etc. After that wait 2.5 hrs and it should be ready to drink and have it all nice and clean
