Exploring the Effects of the Sun on Wood

Using a magnifying glass in our program is very common on the playground for our group, as well as using wood pieces. This month, a child put two materials together in a very new way using the power of the sun to create an amazing reaction. His discovery interested almost all the children and educators on the playground this day as well as some family members! The right angle, the right amount of light and some patience, we discovered, can guarantee an amazing wood burning project like the one pictured the school aged children created together.
