Shine a light on your creative talents (literally) and trace the Earth’s movement via shadows. Engage in small and large-scale art+science activities that highlight the constant motion of our solar system and make the connection between light, movement, and shadows.
Make beautiful art based on the sun’s movement through the sky. Tracing how shadows change from minute to minute, hour to hour, and day to day is a way of observing and collecting data. Students will turn that data into art by using creative colors and shapes to make shadows.
