Product Description

In this hands-on lab activity, students explore how the earth's rotation causes the day/night cycle as well as the apparent motion of the sun across the sky. Students will use a globe and flashlight to create a model to simulate the sun and earth to determine different times of day at different locations on earth. They will also create a model to show patterns in shadows as the sun appears to move across the sky.
