About This Lesson

Since you can’t visit the Sun right now—it is about 93 million miles away after all—you need to rely on pictures taken by telescopes and probes to get an idea of what the Sun looks like. As a scientist, you can use your powers of observation to create a model of the Sun. A model is a copy of something. Models make it easier to share and investigate things that are far away or that are very, very big or very, very small. In this activity, you’ll make a swirling model of the surface of the Sun using shaving cream and food dye. So, what does that Sun look like, up close?
