Description:

Before there were clocks, people used shadows to tell time. In this outdoor activity, learners will discover how to tell time using only a compass, a pencil, a handy printout, and a sunny day. Along the way, learners discover the difference between solar and standardized time, and between geographic and magnetic north.
