OIK: the sun's belly

Today we did our first official science investigation, a very simple one:  which powder makes Oobleck?  Afterwards, sitting in a circle, we talked about how we liked being scientists and about all the kinds of scientists there are, including archaeologists, which led to some discussion of meteors and dinosaurs, which led to this.

My mom says the sun is really a star, and its belly is so big that those points have to come out all around it.

If you like the idea of the sun's big belly, write a poem about it!  Here's mine:

you have eaten up
sand and snow, leaves and lava flow

now your belly glows so big
that you have to lie back
in your blue hammock
your many arms thrown wide
and shine
