Helpful Hints (Mystery of the spoiled party bags)

This week, we would like you to become sun scientists for the week and carry out some observations.  
First, choose one or more of the tests below to carry out 
- Place some newspaper in direct sunlight and another in a dark cupboard.  Place a piece of fruit in direct sunlight and another in the shade, both outdoors. Bananas work well. - Place some interesting shapes on a piece of sugar paper in direct sunlight and place a similar group in a dark cupboard. 
Then open the Purple Mash Comparative Test 2:Do. Note down what your experiment is going to be, what equipment you are using and your method. Make a prediction and then write down your observations at the end of the week. Try to draw a conclusion to explain what happened.
