This is an activity about identifying patterns of change in shadows as an effect of the Sun's changing position. This activity also discusses how shadows can be used to determine the time of day. Learners will build sundials and collect data based on their observations. The data collection exercise must be done outside on a sunny day. Measurements will be taken at various times throughout the day. This is Activity 14 of a larger resource entitled Eye on the Sky.
