Our days and our nights

2009  |  


Subject: Physics
Duration: A school year
Educational stage: Second cycle of compulsory secondary education

During the project Our days and out nights, the pupils will record the number of hours of sunlight daily during a whole school year and compare them with those that have been recorded in the partner school, interpreting the differences according to the different geographical locations of the corresponding places. For this the project has to include the measurement of the latitude using the observation of the Pole star. It is also necessary for the pupils to bear in mind the existence of time zones related to geographical longitude to determine the official time in the partner schools. The study, depending on the age of the pupils, can be broadened to include the identification and study of the planets, the observation of astronomical ephemerides and the comparison of the night sky in the two localities.
