Honalee Fun in the Sun

Today we were scientists! We predicted what might happen to toys and other things if they are left out in the sun. The kids predicted that things could melt if left out in the sun or change color. We tested this by making sun designs. Each student got a piece of black paper. On their paper they made a design with some of our plastic shapes, letters, numbers, etc. Then we left the objects on the paper all day. At the end of the day we discovered that the sun changed the color of the paper (not the toys)! The toys left their outline on the paper while the rest of the paper faded! What a cool and easy experiment to try at home!

Making sun creations

This one turned out the best!!
