The Sun and Earth's Climate

In this issue, we explore the Sun’s role as the primary source of energy for Earth’s climate system. Learn how the reading comprehension strategy of making predictions can support the development of science process skills. Discover lesson plans and informational text that can be integrated into your current instruction, or unit plans that can be used to create a new unit about the Sun’s energy and its effect on Earth’s land, air, and water.
