Sun science is the focus as students explore the Earth's rotation and revolution, the seasons, as well as night and day.
Explore the concept of the Earth's rotation. Working in pairs, one student holds a flashlight (the sun) and the other slowly rotates a large ball (Earth) with a small sticker on it. Challenge students to figure out whether it is day or night where the sticker is, based on the position of the sun in relationship to Earth.
Ask student teams to draw a 24-hour time line on roll paper with Crayola® Markers. For each hour, decide whether it is day or night where you live, and what might be doing as the day goes on in summer and then in winter. How does the season affect whether it is light or dark during certain hours?
Teams choose a time of day and a season. Students paint themselves at self-chosen time of day in the appropriate clothing and activity for the season on white paper. Where will the sun (or moon) be in your painting? Use Crayola® Washable Paint and paint brushes on paper plates to blend colors. Mix small amounts of paint on paper plates.
