This lesson is part of my lesson series focused on S.T.E.M.: Connecting Science and the World. There is a lot of science that is connected to explaining phenomenon in the real world. In this quick activity, students explore what happens to Punxsutawney Phil's shadow when the position of light changes. If you are interested in a complete unit that focuses on the science behind shadows and connects it to the tradition of Groundhog Day, check out the complete unit Let’s Help Out Punxsutawney Phil .
