Product Description

What time is it?

Sundials have been in use for thousands of years to tell time.  There are many types of sundials that use either shadows or slits of light to mark time.  All sundials use the apparent position of the sun since the sun's position can be predicted.  

In the Leaping Shadows Sundial" activity students will:

  • Learn about the positional relationship of the sun and earth
  • Understand that shadows change in a predictable way each day
  • Construct a model of a sundial
  • Use sundials to observe shadows throughout the day
  • Identify factors which influence how a shadow is shaped

Each student receives their own materials to create their own sundial model.  Student worksheets are provided so that every student can record their observations about how the sundial's shadows change during the day.

The Teacher's Guide provides background information on the sundial and discussion topics about using shadows to predict time.
