Cooler in the Shadows
Read the Fine Print
Rating
4.0 stars
Overview:

Students will make inferences about the cause of shadows, by observing and making their own shadows in the sun. Many properties of shadows (such as heat and brightness of light) will also be identified firsthand as the students conduct simple experiments to observe changes that are comparable to those experienced by the MESSENGER spacecraft in its voyage to and around Mercury.
