Tracking the Sun: Observing the Path of the Sun Throughout the Year part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Over the course of the school year, students will collect data about the sun's position at a specific time of day, resulting in creating an analemma (a figure 8 that shows the path of the sun).Recording should be at least weekly. Students will make predictions about the next position based on patterns they have noticed. Classroom discussion will be directed toward the concepts of earth's tilt and the effect of the sun's rays on the planet: warmth, seasons, amount of daylight per day, etc.
