Learning about the SunWe have begun our science unit on the Sun and it's role in our solar system. We made a UV monitor chart for our classroom, and we are recording the daily UV level for rest of the year!
We did an experiment on how the Sun affects the air. We used ice and placed one container in the Sun and one in the shade. We made predictions about what would happen. We discovered the ice in the Sun melted faster than the container of ice in the shade. We concluded that the Sun warms the air.
We will be doing experiments on how plants are effected by the Sun and experiments on shadows.
