This is a lesson plan for an activity illustrating the reasons for the seasons. Learners predict sunrise, noon, and sunset positions on the dates of the equinoxes and solstices, observe these positions in a planetarium, plot their data on graphs, and make further observations and predictions using a light to represent the Sun and the positions of pins on a styrofoam ball to represent various locations on the Earth. The first part of this activity requires facilitation inside a planetarium. This is activity B-7 of Universe at Your Fingertips 2.0: A Collection of Activities and Resources for Teaching Astronomy DVD-ROM, which is available for purchase.
