I have always been fascinated by sun dials. We did a cool thing the other day to learn about time and how you can tell time with your shadow. We made ourselves into a human sun dial! This is an awesome Summer science activity and a great way to learn about the earth’s rotation. My kids really thought this activity was cool- and it is SO simple!
We went outside in the morning and traced my son’s shadow. I also traced around his feet so he could stand in the same spot each time.
Then every couple of hours we went out again and traced his shadow. I wish I had remembered to go out and do it more often during the day so we could really see how it moved each hour., but they got the idea.
