The Sun

Our next chapter in astronomy was on the sun.  Here are a few things we learned: The sun is hot and warms the earth even though it is about 93 million miles away from us.  The earth revolves around the sun as it rotates.  We learned that it is bad to look directly at it because we have a lens like a magnifying glass in our eye.  We also learned about solar flares, sun spots and the color of the sun.

This time we got to experiment using a magnifying glass and chocolate.  We used the magnifying glass to focus the heat of the sun and melt the chocolate.
