Sun Prints

As we get started on our space unit for the summer, we began with the sun.

We read a book about the sun

And then we did an experiment with solar paper, which I ordered off of Amazon for super cheap.

We gathered leaves to put on the paper and inserted it into the frame.

After putting it in the sunlight for about 1-3 minutes, the blue began to fade to white.

Quickly, we took it out of the frame and put it into a tray of water for 1 minute.

As the afternoon went on, the blue came back and deepened as time passed.
