Astronomy: Picture Time

Students investigate how to tell time by observing the placement of objects in the sky. Researching on the Internet, they locate the time for sunrise and sunset, the time the full moon rises, and the difference between clock and solar time. Using digital cameras, students take hourly photos of an object on large pieces of paper and create shadow time posters.
