Sun and Shadows
Mrs. McClain’s class had a most difficult time finding a sunny day to experiment with their shadows during their study of Earth Science. The students (and Mrs. McClain) were so excited when the sun made the activity possible! They needed to observe their shadows twice during the school day.
Their first observation occurred just after lunch at 11:00 am. Students worked in partnerships. Partner one was the artist, drawing the shadow of the other partner using chalk. Partner two was the model, standing so partner one could draw the shadow.
Their second observation took place at 1:40 pm, just before dismissal. Partners continued with their same tasks. The students discovered that their shadows not only changed positions due to the direction of the sun, but were also shorter in length.
The class is planning a fun game of shadow tag on the next sunny day at recess.Full Story
