This activity uses role-playing to demonstrate the connection of the planets to the sun, a very abstract concept for primary age children. Students will make models to represent the planets in comparative size, use their models to demonstrate revolution and rotation of the planets around the sun, and learn the definitions of the terms "revolution", "rotation", and "orbit".

This activity is designed to help students fully understand our planet's relationship to the Sun. Students will make predictions and measure shadows over a period of time to observe that the length of a shadow (and the angle of the Sun's rays to the Earth) changes each week. They should conclude from their data that the position of the Earth relative to the Sun changes with the seasons. Full description.

This demonstration introduces the concept of water phases and cycling to younger students through observation, drawing, and writing. They will be able to explain how the Earth's water supply is recycled, form a hypothesis as to how/why the water cycle works, and use writing and drawing to explain how the cycle works.
