Are you aware of how the sun moves across the sky every day? Making this simple simple sundial inspired in us all sorts of scientific observations!
- Paper plate
- Push pins
Step 1: Put the number “12” on the top of the paper plate with 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 sun dial in the sun and tack it down with push pins. The straw should cast a shadow pointing to the 12.
