Sun Paths 1

The student is shown various paths the sun makes through the sky on various days of the year (around the Autumnal or Vernal Equinoxes, or the Summer and Winter Solstices, among others) and is asked to determine at what latitude the observer is standing (the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, the north and south pole, the equator, and others).
