About

In this lesson, students craft hanging suns that they then use to gather energy—warmth—from the sun. They use their senses to learn about the sun in various contexts, and they recognize and describe ways in which the sun is valuable to us, especially as a source of energy. Students then share what they’ve learned by decorating their hanging sun to express what we love about the sun.
