Description:

Learners construct one or more of the following kinds of sundials: a shadow plot, a horizontal sundial, and a diptych sundial. They track the position of the sun during the course of a day, and use their sundials over the course of several days or even weeks. Learners investigate the accuracy of sundials and the discrepancy that lies between "real time" and "clock time."
