Mesopotamia Lesson

DIY sundial for when we are teaching Ancient Egypt. Ancient Egyptians created sundials to tell time. Place a pencil upright in a ball of clay. Have a student go out every hour to place a stone where the end of the pencil is. Stones can be numbered to show what the hour is. At the end of the day look at the sundial your class has created.
