This activity will help students understand how the angle of the Sun affects temperatures around the globe. After experimenting with a heat lamp and thermometers at differing angles, students apply what they learned to explain temperature variations on Earth. The printable six-page handout includes a series of inquiry-based questions to get students thinking about what they already know about temperature patterns, detailed experiment directions, and a worksheet that will help students use the experiment results to gain a deeper understanding of seasonal temperature changes and why Antarctica is always so cold. The students will explore all the angles of sunlight with a few thermometers and a heat lamp and understand why there is such a dramatic temperature change between the equator and the South Pole.
