One of the more challenging aspects of trying to integrate technology into the classroom is finding phenomenon-based activities that can be enriched by technology applications. This article describes a mathscience-technology activity combining students' collection of data with mathematical and scientific analysis that is enhanced by using the iPod Touch (iTouch). The activity focuses on measuring shadow lengths throughout the school year and then organizing and evaluating the data by using the Planets app on the iTouch. Although this particular lesson was created for fifth graders, it could be adapted for students in other grades as well.
