Make a Sundial
How do you tell time without a watch? Use the sun! The sun can be an accurate time telling device as long as you have the tools to help you. The earliest sundial was built in Ireland from 5000 B.C. Later, obelisks were also used as sundials. This simple activity will show your child how to build his own sundial.
