First thing in the morning (if the sun is out) go outside with some chalk. Find a good spot where there won’t be any shadows from trees or fences and make a cross. Choose a volunteer to be the human sundial and ask them to stand on the cross.  Draw around the shadow and then ask all the children to use a tape measure to see how long the shadow is.
