Telling Time with: Sundials


Introducing "Telling Time with: Sundials," the second in our take-home activity series for children!




Ancient civilizations used nature to help them tell the time. They used shadows cast by the sun to estimate the times of the day. Using the materials in this kit, children will make a sundial out of toy building bricks and have fun comparing its reading to a modern clock or watch to determine its accuracy.
