    I would choose the activity set : The sun and Shadows, as there is a wide variety of different ways you can explore the sun and how it affects shadows etc.

    One fun activity to explore the sun and its shadows in the classroom is to create a sundial. You can place a stick or a pencil in a container filled with sand or playdough and observe how the shadow changes throughout the day as the sun moves across the sky. This hands-on experiment can help students understand how the position of the sun affects the length and direction of shadows. Additionally, you can have students track the movement of the shadow by marking the position of the shadow at different times of the day. It’s a great way to learn about the sun’s apparent motion and how shadows are formed!
