Summer Sun

Topic: 3F Light and shadows

2008 saw the dullest August in the UK since records began in 1929 according to the Met Office. There were just 105.5 hours of sunshine, far less than the average for the month of 165.1 hours.

In this activity children will investigate ways of measuring sunshine and discuss the validity of these methods.
