 Seasons kitSeasons Activity Kit

Students participate in inquiry-based activities that use Earth globes equipped with solar cells and other science instruments to collect meaningful data. Students will investigate the differences in the amount of energy these Earth globes receive with changes in sun angle. This will lead to the discovery of the cause of seasonal change through an analysis of the evidence they collect.

Included in the kit: Lesson Plan Manual, Zodiac Sign Sheets, Light area Measurement Grid,  19"x 14" Board with Hole, Lamps with Stands,  Angle of Incidence Device, Extension Cord, Power Strips, 4 Globes with Solar Panels and Pegs, 6 Digital Multimeters, 6' of string.

 

***TEACHERS:  Please be aware that the cords on the multimeters break easily.  Please use extra care when these are being used.  If they break, the whole unit has to be replaced.

Grade Level: 4-6

Several Game Cartrides are available to check out to go with Classroom Jeopardy!.  Subjects include: Language Arts,  Social Studies (U.S. History, Geography, Civics, World History, Cultures), Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Science (Science Basics, Space Science, Life Science).
