on a sunny day(!), explore the way time passes by drawing round shadows - link to making sundials. mark a spot and stand on it several times during the session.....

Quite bizarrely this session, every time I've been working in a school or running a workshop, the weather has been fine. How can this be so?

Thanks for adding this idea - strangely I'd put it in the "patterns and sequences" section.

At Fermilab near Chicago, the Science Education Centre has a lovely human sundial, where (on a sunny day) you can tell the time by standing in one spot and holding your hands high.
