Thanks for not giving up on me....I will be back to post what my third graders have been up to.
In the meantime, I must share pictures of our super cool sundials.
We were studying Earth's rotation on its axis. For this activity, we were monitoring the change of the sun's location at different times of the day...proof that the Earth is moving.
We were also learning telling time in math so it was a great tie in there too.
It was the perfect fall day to visit the outdoor classroom.
Be sure to pick a day with mostly sunny skies.
Students got practice making observations and writing conclusions.
I love this book as a great read aloud to reinforce the idea that while we are having day, there are places around the world having night.
Don't you love how you can access so many books online?
You can take a listen to this book here:
I'll be adding the sundial experiment to my TPT store soon.
If you want it before I get it added, just email me.
I'm happy to share.
