Time activities

Our home Ed group ran an activity day all about time.

They made fruit clocks,


played time bingo,

made paper plate clocks,

learnt about time zones,


discussed lunar calendars 

and made an Egyptian water clock - with an interesting discussion around how the Greeks adapted the water clock for the different length of days they had with different sized holes, (bigger for the winter when they was less sunlight and smaller holes for the summer when the daylight was longer - you can find a great description over here)

they even got to make a couple of lids for each clock with different sized holes
