DAY AND NIGHT: Interdisciplinary Study Of Cyclic Change by NYSATL
This Learning Experience was introduced in an 8th grade science class with the statement …”length of day is a cyclic change.” From that statement discussion followed where many ideas and questions were shared by the class and recorded. From this introduction, our students carried out a coordinated investigation in math and science of the changing patterns of the length of day from a global perspective. (Note: The Learning Experience could be used in 9th grade Math or Earth Science.)
