The students are writing a story about the sun, so my teacher had them MAKE sundials today, they were so cool and super easy for the kids to do!

After the kids wrote the numbers on their plate, they took them outside as a class and each kid stuck theirs into the ground and placed it so the shadow fell at the correct time (we used skewers or craft sticks). They went out two hours later and were AMAZED that the shadow had changed and it really showed what time it was - awesome, huh? This took almost no time at all for them to make.
Other things on the mind:
-We're going to Idaho on Friday!
-My birthday's in a week
-Devin's cracking down on some job possibilities...............
