Pembleton's Lab #6 The Sun

“The Sun is a giant burning ball of gas!” said Pembleton as Ducky giggled.

Mrs. Cottontail urged Pembleton to continue his report, while she gave Ducky “the stink eye”.

“Like I said, the Sun is a star and all stars are made up of mostly gases. When the gas burns it produces heat and light. Our Sun produces most of the energy that sustains life on Earth. It provides plants with food through photosynthesis. It helps to power homes and cars through solar power.” Pembleton confidently read his report. After he was done the class cheered.

“Any questions?” Pembleton asked.

“Can we visit the Sun?” Ducky asked.

“We are unable to visit the Sun for many reasons. One, it is too hot. Two, it is too far away. Three, we have recess in 5 minutes.” Pembleton answered. “But I did bring these awesome pictures of the Sun from a book I got at NASA. Do you want to see?” The whole class sat a little taller to get a better view as Pembleton showed them a few of his favorite photographs.
