PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teaching about how an object can block light and cast a shadow? Teaching about sundials? Do you want to challenge teams of students to create their own sundials? This product could be just what you need!!

Students create a simple sundial that's easy to make and great to take home to where with families.

What's included?
  ✓ Several images and a PowerPoint™ presentation* make it easy to introduce sundials. All the images in the presentation are copyright free so you can use them any way you like!
  ✓ A short teacher background gives you an overview of the different kinds of sundials.
  ✓ A video helps students see how to create their sundial with a paper plate, a triangle of card stock, and a bit of tape.
  ✓ A short text about sundials. What reading level are your students? Not to worry, you can choose from three reading levels in English AND two in Spanish. Do your students struggle with reading? All have been recorded for students who benefit from hearing the text. Choose color images if you have that option or blackline images for students to color.
  ✓ An extension to the activity, challenging students to create their own sundial. You could provide common materials like paper plates, index cards, old paper plates, craft sticks, coffee stirrers, or straws to have teams of students design, test, and refine the design to create a new sundial. Or, they could bring a sundial made from scrap materials found at home.
