Earth Science: Create a Star Clock!

Pupils identify and use the starts to tell time just as people had for thousands of years. They identify the stars that appear to rise in the east and set in the west, and that those stars near the North Pole appear to go in circles around it. Finally, students create a star clock appropriate to their geographic location.
