In this team relay activity students will decide which objects help protect them from the sun and which objects do not.
Many animals, like chimpanzees, avoid the peak hours of the sun—most of their activities are in the early morning and late afternoon. In another strategy to avoid the sun, Rhinos use mud as a natural sun block. These animals roll in the mud to thickly coat themselves and protect their skins from the sun. Hippos do not use mud, their skin secretes an oily natural "sunscreen."
The sun is very powerful, and avoiding it is not always possible. Since humans do not bathe in mud or produce natural sunscreen, how can we protect ourselves from too much sun?
