The sun l.jpg

The Sun…

…is necessary for life on Earth.

It helps plants to grow, and provides warmth and light.

Sunlight also helps people to be happy and healthy.


The sun9 l.jpg

The Sun…

…produces light and warmth but also Ultraviolet (UV) radiation. UV radiation cannot be seen or felt.

It is UV radiation, not the warmth or brightness of the sun that causes changes to skin color, damage to eyes, and other bad health effects.
