Sun Prints

Students discuss energy and where they can find it. They will then discuss the sun and how it functions as an energy source. Next, students get a piece of black paper and some coins. They go outside and make a design with the coins on top of their paper. After the design is left in the sun for a few minutes, the students remove the coins. Students discover that the energy from the sun faded the paper that wasn't covered by the coins.
