In this lesson from Science NetLinks, students take a closer look at the sun and begin to recognize its critical function in heating and warming the air, land, and water that sustain our lives. This involves drawing their attention to the basics of the heat around them and how the sun is the primary source of that warmth. They then perform a number of indoor and outdoor activities that help them begin to identify the sun as the natural, universal source of heat in the world.
