This is an activity that uses numerical information to help dispel the prior conception that distance from the Sun causes the seasons on Earth. Learners will examine two images of the Sun, taken six months apart, measure the apparent diameter of the Sun over the course of twelve months, calculate the approximate Earth-Sun distance for each observation, and graph the data. This is Activity B-8 of Universe ... Full description.

This is an activity about the Sun's position in the sky. Learners will use a clear plastic hemisphere to create a model of the sky and mark the position of the Sun in the sky on the hemisphere several times throughout the day. From this information, learners can determine the location of sunrise, sunset, and the Sun's height at noon. This activity can be repeated over the course of several days, weeks, ...

This is a lesson plan for an activity about the changing horizon positions of sunrise. Learners will predict horizon positions of sunrise on several dates throughout the year and plot monthly azimuth data on a graph using data from Stonehenge. In a further enhancement of this activity, learners explore the changing azimuth of sunrise using Stonehenge data from two or more successive days for each ... Full description.

This is a lesson plan for an activity illustrating the reasons for the seasons. Learners predict sunrise, noon, and sunset positions on the dates of the equinoxes and solstices, observe these positions in a planetarium, plot their data on graphs, and make further observations and predictions using a light to represent the Sun and the positions of pins on a styrofoam ball to represent various locations ...

This is a lesson plan for several related activities about the Sun. Learners will observe how a candle flame is like the Sun, brainstorm why the Sun is needed and how energy from the Sun is used, construct a Sun-Earth scale model illustrating both size and distance, and build and use a small solar oven. The scale model activity requires a straight-line distance of 55 meters to show the Sun-Earth size ... Full description.

This is a lesson plan for an activity about the nature of the Sun's apparent motion throughout the day. Learners will follow detailed instructions to construct a sundial using everyday materials and make measurements of the shadow cast by the sundial. Learners use the shadow cast by the sundial to track the motion of the Sun throughout the day and use these measurements, geometry, and trigonometry ... Full description.
