Create a Sundial Craft
Are you aware of how the sun moves across the sky every day? Making this simple sundial inspired in us all sorts of scientific observations!
- Paper plate
Step 1: Put the number “12” on the top of the paper plate with a crayon. Proceed with the rest of the numbers on a clock.
Step 2: Punch a hole in the center of the plate. Then insert the straw.
Step 3: Close to noon put the sundial in the sun and tack it down with push pins. The straw should cast a shadow pointing to the 12.
Check throughout the day and explain to the kids how the sun helps us know the time.
