Student Instructions

Yesterday, you recorded the shadow length of your structure throughout the day. Now, we will be graphing the changes. 1. Look at the data you recorded yesterday. 2. Either on notebook paper or the template attached, click add and Title your graph "Shadow Length Changes" using the label tool. 3. On the bottom of the graph, label the hours and write "Time" as shown in the example. 4. Write "Shadow Length (cm)" as shown in the example on the side of the graph, with numbers in equal intervals. For example, if your longest shadow was 32 cm, you might use intervals of 4 or 5. If your longest was was shorter than that perhaps 18 cm, then you could use intervals of 2. If you arent sure, use intervals of 5 to be safe. 5. Plot the points for the time and length of the shadow at that time. Use the example as a guide. 6. Discuss 3 observations based on your drawings of the shadow on the lines using the label tool 7. When you are finished, click check
