Making a Sundial

Zeph’s sundial made with sticks

I made a sundial with my Dad. We hammered a tall straight stick into the ground. Then at 9:00 in the morning we marked where the stick’s shadow came. We marked the tall shadow with a small stick every hour. We used twigs to make Roman numerals. If you have a garden and the weather is sunny, you can make your own!
