Product Description
(28 pages) Using actual Sun images from different months, students will make simple measurements (cm) of solar diameters. Then, using a graph, students will convert these solar diameters into distances from Earth. Using the distance from Earth for each month, students will plot a circular graph that shows the true shape of Earth's orbit. Apparent in the shape of Earth's orbit, is the fact that it cannot be the cause of our planet's seasons. This is an excellent activity that utilizes measuring and graphing skills, as well as a scientific way of thinking. (NOTE: Due to the quantitative nature of this activity, it is important that the document's size remains unchanged. Please make sure that the print setting is 100%.)
