Warmth from the Sun and Sun Protection

Grade 1 Lessons, Science, The Son No Comments

Warmth from the Sun

The sun warms the land, water and air. Solids absorb heat faster than liquids and gases.

Sun Protection

Too much heat from the sun is harmful. There are different ways to protect you from the Sun’s heat:

  1. Avoid going out and exposing yourself to the sun for long hours.
  2. Apply sunscreen before a long sunlight exposure.
  3. Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.
  4. Never look directly at the sun.
  5. Use an umbrella or wear a wide-brimmed hat
  6. Wear loose-fitting clothes
  7. Drink plenty of water and fruit juices during hot days.

The sun is the main source of heat and light of the earth.

It is the center of the Solar System.

The planets and their moons, the meteors and other celestial objects move around the sun.

Sun’s Heat

The sun’s heat can:

  1. keep all things on Earth warm
  2. can produce electricity
  3. living tings need heat to live
  4. heat helps children grow healthy

Care for the Earth

Grade 1 Lessons, Science, The Son No Comments

Care for the Earth

The Earth needs to be cared for.

Biodegradable materials are objects that easily decay like fruit peel and paper. These can be used as compost or fertilizer for the soil and as fuel.

Nonbiodegradable materials are objects that do not easily decay even after a hundred of years. Some of the wastes here can be recycled, processed and/or reused like old bottles made into new glass containers.

To keep the soil fertile, plant seedlings. Plant roots help hold the soil together by preventing the top part of the soil from being washed away. Adding compost, a mixture of decaying matter like fruit peels and decaying leaves is another way to make the soil fertile.

The water and the air are also important in the environment.

Waste pollutes water like rivers and streams.

By not burning waste, especially plastic that is poisonous when inhaled, would help curtail serious health problems.
