The Sun, the Sky, and a Whole Lotta Pie: Ruff Ruffman's Sun and Shadows Game

Detailed Information

Explore the relationship between the Sun’s apparent path in the sky and changing shadows with this interactive game featuring PBS KIDS character Ruff Ruffman. Students help Ruff use shadow clues to solve a problem: getting to the bakery before his twin brother so he can get the only apple-bacon-kibble pie made. The game allows students to model and manipulate the location of the Sun to observe the effect on an object’s shadow.
