Who did you think would win the game at first (RED or BLUE)? Why?
How did you feel as the rules changed? Did you get discouraged or more confident? Why?
What were the reasons why the BLUE team won?
Historically speaking, what happened once America won the Revolutionary War? What changed in America?
What might be different today if America had lost the war?
I was a member of the red team, or the British team. We represented the strong side, and all of the people on my team were tall experianced and very strong.
I felt confident, and I thought we were going to win. I thought that because we had the biggest, tallest, and most skilled people on our team, but confused because half of our team had to come in late.
I thought that the red team was going to win. I thought that because we had the best people on our team. Also I had a little dout that our team was going to win because, half of our team had to come in late.
I felt a little discouraged because all of the rules were against our team I felt. I felt that was because the rules were that the other team got more players, that our team had to go a further, and half of our team had to go out and when Mr.Solarz said GO! They could come in.
one reason the blue team was they had more people. Another reason was they did not have to go a distance they just had to stop us from getting to the spot we had to go in a short amount of time.
The thing that changed in america was america was now free from England. Also when the war was they sent the declaration of independance.
If america did not win the war, we might still be ruled my England, and still paying all of those unfair taxes.
What patterns did you notice about the shadow length throughout the day?
What caused these patterns?
When you analyzed your shadow graphs, when did the longest shadows occur? Why?
When you analyzed your shadow graphs, when did the shortest shadows occur? Why?
What was the most challenging part of this lesson?
What do you feel you learned from completing this lesson?
shad 1. In the morning when the sun was low the shadow was long in the west. When the sun was high at about noon the shadow was short and pointing towards the north (not exactly). Than again in the afternoon when the sun was going down and was lower in the sky the shadow got longer not as long as in the morning, but still longer than the shadow at noon also it was pointed to the east. 2. These patterns are caused by the suns rising in the east and setting in the west. I know that because when the sun is rising in the east the shadow casts diagonally so the shadow is cast in the opposite direction for example in the morning when the sun first rises the sun's rays are cast in the east so your shadow is in the west 3. The longest shadows are in the morning when the sun is low in the sky. that occurs because the sun is low in the sky, and the shadows are angled towards the ground stretching them out and making them longer\
4. The shortest shadows occur at about 12:00 pm. They occur at that time because that is when the sun is at it's highest position in the sky, and the sun is pointed directly down at the ground. The effect of the sun being pointed at the ground is the shadow is short.
5. I think the most challenging part of the lesson was trying to get the shadow just right when you measured. That was the most challenging for me because one time I had my clipboard pointed in the wrong and almost measured wrong.
6. I feel that I learned the patterns of shadows , and how they are measured. I feel that I learned that because when we were done with the lesson I felt that I could explain how to measure a shadow and its patterns.
