Working:

Sundial, the earliest type of timekeeping device, which indicates the time of day by the

position of the shadow of some object exposed to the sun’s rays. As the day progresses, the

sun moves across the sky, causing the shadow of the object to move and indicating the passage of time.

The ancient Egyptians were either the first or one of the first ancient civilizations to divide a

day into sections, so they could tell what time it was.


Learning Outcome:

Students construct a sundial and use it to observe the movement of the sun through the sky over the

course of a day by marking changes in the position of a shadow once each hour

Students will gain an understanding of the daily movement of the sun across the sky and experience

conducting a set of simple, quantitative observations.
