Warming the Earth

First graders investigate how the sun warms the Earth and examine the rotation of the Earth and the sun. They create an illustration of the sun, examine a solar system model, and listen to the book "The Sun: Our Nearest Star." They also record the temperatures of cups of water, with one cup outside and one cup inside the classroom.
