1.What patterns did you notice about the shadow length throughout the day?
2.What caused these patterns?
4.When you analyzed your shadow graphs, when did the shortest shadows occur? Why?
5.What was the most challenging part of this lesson?
6.What do you feel you learned from completing this lesson?
- It went up and down like a roller coaster, throughout the day. If we wouldn't have had those time markings you would think were completely wrong and I think thats because of the spot we were in. We were behind a wall but not really, we were like a few feet behind a wall.
- The suns postings throughout the day at first it was dark and shadow like then it became lighter and lighter and lighter till we had to cover our eyes. All though it was EXTREMELY cold we got through it.
- 10:30 and 12:00 were the most sunniest parts of the day and in the morning it was dark like very dark.
- During the middle of the day, and I think that because the battery was blocking the sun just a bit more during that time.
- Trying to keep the battery standing in the wind without falling over was the hardest part every few seconds it would fall over and when we put our hand on it, it messed up the shadow.
- I feel like i learned a lot but the most interesting thing was that noon occurred as one of the shortest shadows and seemed odd to me, but i think that was because that was of the spot we were in.
