This worksheet explains the Earth’s orbit around the sun, and on its own axis, and tasks students with looking daylight hours on the 1st of each month for a year (you needn’t be up at sunrise every day, don’t worry, a table with average times is provided).
Students can then plot this data on the graph provided and note any patterns.
In this block from Hamilton Trust students will create their own shadow puppet play using their knowledge and skills on light and shadows.
They can make their own theatre and puppets for the show in groups and conduct investigations on shadows, light and reflections.
