HOW TALL IS YOUR SHADOW?

CLICK HERE to access full activity instructions! See below for some tips from Ms. Marion, LASM Educator, and New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees.

 

Of course, scientists always record their observations! Thanks for sharing your shadow chart with us,

Ms. Marion!

Like Drew Brees, you can use a non-standard unit of measurement: your hand, a roll of paper towels, or a football. Ms. Marion also had fun measuring her shadow using her pet cat Shelby!

Just like an ancient sundial, your shadow changes height and placement throughout the day. Measure your shadow outside at different times of the day and, if you have sidewalk chalk, trace your shadow each time and watch it grow and shrink!
