The Sun

4 August, 2011


We’ve just begun learning about the sun. We’ve got an idea of the size of the sun compared to Earth. We also got to do a really cool activity, one that we weren’t allowed to do as kids.
We got to play with fire. Well, make fire, actually.
To demonstrate the power of the sun we played with magnifying glasses, focusing the sun’s rays. We then used our new-found power to burn holes in leaves.
“It’s so cool, we’re controlling the sun!”
