Jump into the Science with NG free pdf The sun gives us light. It gives us life. Without the sun, we could not survive on Earth-there would be no Earth. Sun looks at the science behind the big ball of gas shining in the sky. What is it made of? How hot is it? How long would it take to get there? In light-hearted but fact-filled fashion, science educator and author Steve Tomecek answers these questions and more. Following the lead of two kids and a purple cat, the reader will learn about sunspots and solar flares, how the sun creates night and day and seasons, and how the sun warms the planet Earth. Carla Golembe's stunning gouache artwork blends a whimsical and scientific style to show Earth in its place in the solar system, scientists studying the sun through special telescopes, and the bounty of life on Earth nurtured by the heat-giving rays of our very own star. A do-it-yourself experiment with easy-to-follow illustrated steps shows budding scientists how the Earth orbits the sun and what affect that has on those who inhabit Earth. This joyful gentle introduction to astronomy will leave young readers ready for the moon and the stars!
