Description

Overview:
Students will apply math concepts related to measuring angles to diagram the Earth’s rotation throughout a 24-hour period. This task allows for multiple entry points in that students can either use their knowledge of angle measures (e.g., the Earth would rotate 180° by noon) or knowledge of fractions (e.g., 1/2 of a complete rotation would occur by noon) to begin grappling with the task. By creating diagrams, students will also develop an understanding of using tools to measure angles, as well as apply the concept that angle measures are additive (e.g., I figured out that the Earth rotates 15° each hour. Therefore, I realize that the earth rotates 45° in three hours). This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
