I teach k-2nd grade. Although we haven't used the sun as subject matter
yet, after reading your post I'm considering it. There is a wealth of
information within the Pagan community. Books on solstice rites, myths,
etc. There is also a beautiful book, The Book of the Sun by Tom Folley and
Iain Zaczek, which is on discount sale at Borders Book stores for about
$6.00. It is large, with colorful pictures, both based on myth and
science. There is also a companion book, Th Book of the Moon, which I used
when we did our feelings project where I linked emotions to myths of the
moon pertaining to that subject with the kindergarten. Good luck.
Sincerely, Diane L.
