This week we will be analysing the results of a shadow stick investigation. To help you with this, please engage in this learning object, especially the start which demonstrates the sun apparent movement across the sky and the changing shadows.
I love Bill Nye, so when I found this video I had to include it. Further explanations of the Earth's rotation (day and night) and revolution around the sun and its tilted axis (seasons)
Using the Video Summary sheet provided, Paraphrase (that means to say in your own words) the main points of the video, and write down any questions you might have.
