Product Description
In this lab, students will investigate how the Earth's rotation changes the size and direction of shadows cast by the sun throughout the day. They will trace their shadows (with a partner) with chalk at 3 times throughout the day from the same spot and observe changes to the shadows.

All you need is: chalk, pavement, a sunny day, and these activity pages!

I have included two different versions of the lab sheet: Version 1 and Version 2. Version 2 offers more written response and critical thinking questions.
