Ocober 5, 2017 - Miss Dennis and Miss Blanchard's first grade class is learning about Space Systems: Patterns and Cycles as part of the Next Generation Science Standards. We have been discussing what a pattern is and objects that we can observe in the sky. On this day, the children observed the sun at three times during the day (morning, mid-day, and late afternoon). Each time the children went outside, we made some measurements and recorded them. We observed the position of the sun in the sky and the length of the shadow it cast from a tree outside the building. Children were amazed to notice that the sun changed position in the sky throughout the day as did the shadow of the tree!
