Description:

This site from Paper Plate Education provides an activity using only a globe and plastic cup to determine the position on the earth where the sun appears directly overhead. Plotting this point on several days throughout a year yields an analemma, a figure-eight shape on the globe. The site provides background information, a gallery of pictures, and links to more activities.
