Materials Needed:

  • Rotating globe
  • Lamp with bare bulb

Get Started:

  • Place the globe on a table about 2 feet from the lamp (which represents the sun). Make sure to shine the lamp only on the side of the globe.
  • Turn out the lights in the room.
  • Where is your home on the globe? Place your home in the lighted area and turn the globe.

What does this mean?

  • One complete turn of the globe = 1 day (24 hours)
  • The earth turns to the east and the sun appears to move to the west where it sets.
  • The dark side of the earth experiences nighttime.
