INVESTIGATION

The sun is in different places in the sky at different times of the day. It rises in the east and sets in the west. This is a pattern. Modeling the Sun on a Playhouse You will model the sun on your playhouse. • Mark an E on the land to show east. East is where the sun rises. • Mark a W on the land to show west. West is where the sun sets. • Use the flashlight to show light from the sun. Show how the sun appears to travel across the sky above the playhouse. Look in the text if you need help. Watch how the light shines on different parts of the playhouse. Understanding the Problem Next, you will plan where to put the windows. • Your playhouse will have three windows. • The windows should be placed so that sunlight comes into the playhouse all day long. 20
