Skyscraper Sun Test

Today we made "skyscrapers" out of discarded boxes (we raided Grandma's recycling bin as well as ours--apparently we go through a lot of gluten-free cookies around here;-). Then used a flashlight to test where the sun's shadows would fall. The second part of the project was supposed to be to change some of your buildings to have "setbacks" to let in more sun. But since I had already started reading about setbacks my smart boys had already make most of their skyscrapers with setbacks :)
