This incredible bundle allows students to investigate how the daily path of the sun changes with the seasons. Students are introduced to the following concepts and terms: zenith, celestial sphere, solar noon, tropic of cancer, tropic of capricorn, solstices, equinoxes, shadows, etc. Included is a PowerPoint presentation, which encompasses dynamic animations and diagrams which help illustrate the path of the sun for each of our four seasons. Sunrise and sunset are illustrated in their different positions for each season as well. This PowerPoint helps to clarify and illustrate an often difficult "big idea" for students.
Additionally, a helpful lesson plan paired with a set of guided notes are included in this bundle.
