|Before the sun|
A set of crayons were put in the sun to see what would happen.
|After the sun|
After leaving them in the sun for about an hour on a 70 degree day, the children found that the brown and black crayons melted. The gray, purple, and dark green were in the beginning stages of melting.
One child explained that this happened because black absorbs heat and white reflects light.
The children decided if it had been a really hot day, all the crayons would have melted. We will try again on the next hot day and let you know what we find out.
