Time for sunshine (vampires beware!)

Making a sundial

In this activity, students will learn how to use the Sun to tell the time. They will make a simple stick sundial in the school area, identify where the shadow is cast every hour and mark this with a stone and chalk. The next day they can test their results to see if the sundial is accurate at telling the time.
