Template for written recording of plan of learning experiences from short (one session/lesson), to medium (series of lessons/unit of work). A range of examples are on your program Moodle site. As necessary, specific
information on how to complete this LEP is provided by your lecturer in a course.

Students to plan and conduct an investigation of the length and direction of

shadows during the day.

26th August


NOTE: Use the relevant curriculum document: Australian Curriculum (P-10); QSA Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline; QSA Early Years Curriculum Guidelines; QSA Essential Learnings and Standards
(Years 1 -9); QSA Learning area (Year 10); QSA Subject syllabus/SAS (Years 11 12), and other curriculum sources (school priorities, etc.)

Earths rotation on its axis causes regular changes, including night and day (ACSSU048)
Science involves making predictions and describing patterns and relationships (ACSHE050)
Prior knowledge:

LMQ1 - What does the learner already know? (Links to prior knowledge & interests including diagnosis of
previous learning experiences)

Can recognise differences between night and day

That there are certain objects in night and day (Sun, Moon)
How to recognise a shadow
That the Earth and Moon move around the sun
That the Sun, Earth and Moon are different sizes
Planning out the investigation

Learning outcomes/standards:
LMQ2 - Where does the learner need/want to be?
(Knowledge & understanding & skills to be acquired or further developed. Draw upon relevant content descriptions from curriculum document to inform specific outcomes/standards for this learning experience.
Foreground achievement standards that will inform assessment. Use descriptors appropriate for phase of learning & curriculum. QSA, 2011, defines curriculum as the sum total of the learning and development
experiences that are offered by a school, formally and informally, in class and out of class.)
Knowledge & understanding:

How shadows are made.

Changes in size and direction of shadows during the day.

Learning processes:

Describe how shadows are made.

Describe changes in size and direction of shadows during a
Observe light and shaded sides of objects in sunlight.

of the different sections and to review all areas to make

Students will come and get the materials needed to make
their shadow trackers. Assist any students having trouble.
(Leave the one I have already made at the front of the
class for students to look at).
Once students have all finished have them come to the
carpet and discuss the lesson that we drew our shadows
at 12pm and 2pm.
This experiment will be similar because we will be tracking
a shadows movement throughout the day. This time we
will be going out every hour with a black marker and
drawing the shadows line to mark it.
Re-introduce the concept of a fair test and explain that we
need to keep the direction of the shadow trackers always

outside they are in the same position and we are tracking
a fair experiment.

Have students come and sit on the carpet and Model filling
out the table for the experiment results. Measuring the
shadow length using a ruler and matching the time on the
experiment to the time on the table and writing length of
the shadow in.

experiments outside and track the last of our shadows
Students bring in their experiments in after drawing the last
line on the shadow tracker. And begin transferring the
data into the table.
Once students have transferred the data into the table
have them come to the carpet and Model how to make a
graph. Students have already done this during maths but
they may need refreshing of the concept. Discuss the
features of a graph and the purpose for using them to
represent data.
When students have finished making their graphs they are
