Here comes the sun!

The sun finally arrived today so we were able to do our shadow investigation. We drew around our shadows at 11:00, 12:00, 13:15, 14:00 and 15:00 to watch how the sun’s position in the sky changes as the Earth spins on its axis. After 11:00 we predicted where we thought the shadows would be next.

We found that the shaodws are shortest between 12:00 and 14:00, when the sun is higher in the sky.

Predicting where the sun, and how long our shadows will be…

While we were waiting for the sun, we wrote our predictions of where we think the sun will be in the sky and how long our shadows will be at different times. We know that it isn’t really the sun that is moving it’s the Earth that is spinning round. Jacob gave us the great analogy of being in a car and the bushes look like they are moving when in fact it is the car that is moving!
