Science (Light – creating a sundial)

Last week you completed an experiment on shadows and how light travels. Hopefully you discovered that light is blocked by objects and that makes a shadow – a shadow is the absence of light. You should have found that the closer an object is to the source of light the bigger the shadow.

Shadows from the sun can be used to tell the time in a sundial.

A sundial is an instrument that tells the time like a clock. It has a pole in its center and markings that show hours or fraction of hours. It works on the concept of the sun changing its location in the sky throughout the day.

When the sun shines on the pole, it casts shadows that appear on different markings on the sundial. This instrument is in use since ancient times and was the main indicator of time until the early 19th century. This is still not known exactly who invented the sundial. It is also one of the oldest scientific instruments of the world.

This instrument depends on the rotation and movement of the Sun from east to west.

You can become a sundial in your garden.

  1. Find an empty part of your garden and mark the place where you stand with an ‘X’ in chalk.
  2. Ask someone to draw the outline of your shadow with chalk and write the time next to the shadow.
  3. Measure the length of your shadow with a metre ruler and write it in the table.
  4. Repeat steps 2, 3 and 4 at different times in the day. What do you think will happen to your shadow at different times of the day?

Science

Draw a line graph or bar chart below showing the length of your shadow at different times of the day. What happened to your shadow?

 

Have a great day on home learning. I look forward to seeing your day’s activities on the email.
