This week we learned about the sun. The children compared real and pretend pictures. They learned: The sun is a star made of fire and gases. It is 93 million miles away. The sun creates seasons as the earth rotates around it. The sun gives heat and light. Earth needs the sun for everything to live. The sun has rays. Nathanael, Keagan, Zoe, Jordon and Ryker work on thier painting of the sun.
