#2 Outdoor Adventure: Record The Earth’s Rotation
What you need:
Pen / Marker / Any straight object
What to do:
Crate a mountain of play dough in the middle of the paper plate.
Stick the straight object in the center so it stands up.
Write “N” on the plate where North is.
Have kids mark a line in pencil where the shadow is, and mark down what time you recorded the line. Check hourly and make observations and hypotheses (is there a pattern? Is the distance between the first and second line the same as the distance between the second and third? Can you guess where the 4th line will be?)
