Storytime Science for Kids: The Sun

Wednesday, July 29, 2020 • 1:00 p.m. PDT

Online Event: Join below or via Facebook and YouTube.

Join us for Storytime Science—a storybook read aloud followed by a simple related activity geared toward very young children. This month, Exploratorium staffer and children's literature aficionado Vivian Altmann will read Sun! One In A Billion, by Stacy McAnulty, illustrated by Stevie Lewis. The sun is our own very famous superstar! It lights up our solar system and makes our Earthling lives possible.

Then we’ll do a simple activity—all you’ll need is a sheet of paper, a pair of scissors, and the sun. Together we’ll make a paper snowflake that you can use to see images of the sun. Take it out for a light walk and see what you see!
