First-graders at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School are learning about light by observing the sun, moon and stars. The students in Kathy Smerechniak’s class made their own sun trackers. The students recorded three sets of data throughout the day. They then laid their sun trackers down and aligned the north arrow with the compass. The students drew an arrow on their trackers in the middle of the shadow and labeled the time.
