Sundials

Sundials are timekeeping devices that tell the time by the position of the Sun. Sundials consist of the surface marked with lines indicating the hours of the day, and a gnomon, which is a thin rod or a sharp, straight edge and is the part that casts a shadow onto the surface. The edge of the shadow cast by the gnomon lines up with hour-lines on the surface as the sun moves across the sky.

We will be building and learning to read a sundial.
