Reply To: Module 2 – The Moon, the Earth and the Sun

    I particular loved the Sun and Shadows section. I think the children would absolutely love this especially making the sundial

    We could start by eliciting from the children all the different ways from where we get the time. Then I am sure it would amaze them by telling them that people long ago could tell the time without any of these and that we are going to make what they used to do.

    I love the idea of using a simple flower pot, a bamboo

    stick and stones and chalk!

    We can mark where the sun is every hour using our shadow!!

    They will mark where their shadow is very hour.

    From this so much so much cross curricular integration can take place from from this

    It is such a cool activity

    As we are out there at all we can measure our shadow at diffrerent times of the day, discuss when our shadow is longer /shorter.

    When we go in we can explore with flash lights and shapes to keep the whole exploration of shadow theme going.

    I am really excited about all of this already!
