THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL TUESDAY, JUNE 9. 1998 — B A NEWSPAPER IN EDUCATION ACTIVITY PAGE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE ©1998 Vicki Whiting, Editor, Claire Stephens Kleffel, Designer/Illustrator Vol. 14 No. 20 The sun shines in the winter and the summer, right? So why is a sunny day hot in the summer and cold, in the winter? Blame it on the earth/ It has to do with the earth's tilting back and forth as it travels around the sun. In the winter, the part of the earth where you live is tilted away from the sun and it gets indirect sunlight Indirect sunlight doesn't warm up the earth as much as the direct sunlight we get in the summer. Experiment Tells All Try this experiment to understand the difference between indirect and direct sunlight. Keep track of your work in the Scientist's Notebook. What you need: 2 metal pie tins or flat pans : a sunny day What to do: 1. Lay one pan flat on the ground in the direct sunlight. (Fig. 1) 2. Tilt the other pan on its side. Lean it against a rock or a shoe. This pan is being hit with indirect sunlight. (Fig. 2) 3. Wait 3 minutes. 4. Which pan is warmer?
