Telling Time with Earth’s Orbit and Axial Tilt
(Designed for 4th – 6th Graders)
We are happy to post a STEM activity lesson that we used this year. This activity incorporates videos and hands-on activities to teach kids about Earth’s orbit and axial tilt, the seasons, and shadows. The sundial can be left in a sunlit window and tell you the time!
