Long ago, people explained the mysteries of the Sun with stories. Today, we send spacecrafts to the Sun to find out how it shines. Part of the Starting with Space series, this book explains the science behind the mysteries of the Sun. Each chapter opens with a story, and then goes on to answer a child's most common questions about the Sun in an easy-to-understand way. Readers will learn how to simulate an eclipse and how to make a sundial. These and many other "Try It" activities and experiments can be done with materials found around the home and classroom. This unique combination of facts, folklore, simple experiments and hands-on activities meets the research needs of 7 to 11 year olds and gives kids lots of accessible information about the Sun.
