Transcript of Changing Shadows
Find out where the Sun rises, and where it sets.
Find out why the Sun appears to move across the sky.
Find out how the Earth's rotation causes the shadows we see on Earth to change.
Today we are going to...
Time to get started...
The Sun rises in the East, and sets in the West.
What did we learn?
The Sun is not moving. Instead, the Earth is rotating on its axis, which makes the Sun look like it is traveling across the sky.
The movement of the Sun follows a pattern during the day.
The pattern of the Sun's movement causes shadows to also follow a pattern.
Back to shadows...
When the Sun is low in the sky, the shadows are long.
When the Sun is high in the sky, the shadows are short.
Whatever direction the Sun is in the Sky, the shadow it creates will be in the opposite direction.
