Description

A great classroom activity for demonstrating how distance and the sun's gravitational pull create tidal bulges (high tides) on both the near and far side of the earth.

To explore the sun and moon's influence on our tides, try our Tide-O-Matic activity! Full instructions are available at www.exploratorium.edu/snacks/tide-o-matic.
