Product Description
How does the Sun’s position in the sky effect shadows on Earth?

Students interact with a model to show how shadows change as the Sun’s position in our sky changes.

Understanding why the Sun appears to move across the sky and why shadows change as the day progresses are two ideas students struggle with. These concepts are so abstract that it is difficult for them to picture. This model makes the sun-earth relationship more visible.

Note: This is a model. Students should understand that even though the flashlight is moving, it is the Earth's rotation that causes the Sun to move across the sky.

In addition to the printout for student notebooks, you will need objects that stand independently (without being propped up) and flashlights. These can be figurines or even a 3 inch straw piece stuck in a bit of clay.

Includes sample pictures, color and b/w notebook print outs
