This activity has the student constructing illustrations to show (1) his or her position on the Earth globe depending on that person's latitude. Then a separate illustration has the student adding the altitude of Polaris to the sky dome. To this Sun positions are added to show the altitude of Sun on each of the start of the four seasons. All of this is structured so that the student can consider the optimum position of a solar collector since the Sun swings higher and lower during the year.
Please note that there IS NOT just one solution to this activity. Student answers will vary with different latitudes. The solution pages show how this works for the latitude of the author (28.9 degrees N.) I would strongly recommend that the teacher go through each of the steps so that an answer key is available when comparing student results.
There are 14 pages in this activity: 7 white pages for duplication and distribution to the class and 7 cream colored pages showing a typical solution for the teacher.
