This Makauri School E-Book has been created to share a record of their schools journey in creating what we believe may be the ‘FIRST’ Analemmatic Sundial in Gisborne city. This E-Book can be found on: www.gisbornesundials.co.nz Ray Sheldrake has been promoting the concept of Analemmatic (human) Sundials in Gisborne city to leverage on the claim ‘FIRST’ to see the sun.

This E-Book was created by SheldrakevisualART.com to also feature on: www.gisbornespecials.co.nz © 10 December 2014


© Intro. Brief - Teaching Paper - prepared by Georgette Jenson as an initial ‘Sundial 101’ to illustrate the potential and educational value of introducing Sundials to our Gisborne District Primary Schools as a fresh, fun, topic with wide educational benefit.

Education:

Georgette Jenson: Won a National Excellence in Teaching Award in 2010. She visits cities throughout NZ to help upskill teachers and believes this Sundial concept will make for great educational value - especially for Gisborne city: ‘first to see the sun’.

SUNDIAL - SCIENCE: The BIG Question/s

eg: How has telling the time developed / improved over time * Design / make: simple to complex , small to large. * Explain how they work / move > Rotation - Sun / Solar System - Light * Experiment - Scientific Method. Make and read sundial at a specific time every day / few days / weeks

* Compare - Contrast / problem pose (what if ) Problem Solve - Sun / Clouds / Seasons / effects on telling time

* Read Sundial different times of the day: Discuss Shadow // what about night time?

* Hypothesis ( Scientific Method - to prove or disprove) eg: The speed of the Shadow depends on the length of the gnomon. May lead to more questions. eg: Is the length of shadow determined by seasons? Why or why not? Experiments to prove / disprove

SCIENCE: Technology

Where to place Sundials? What to look for. Do Sundials work on: Equator / North - South Poles - Research / Discuss * Questions: Why do gnomons not point straight up? Where do they point? Human Sundials - make / create.

SOCIAL SCIENCE & Technology: (Old Term - Social Studies)

* Sundials around the world. Why did people need to tell the time? * Timeline of notable Sundials. Oldest Sundial, biggest sundial, portable sundial etc. * Telling the time at night? * Shapes of Sundials - Cubic 1840 Ring Dial / Cadot 1680 Scape (Rome 100AD)

ENGLISH: Gisborne Advertising / Posters / Slogans

* Report writing - factual / accounts * Kids can make Short Video Clip or Power Point Presentation explaination * Describing how Sundial works

ART: * Labelling / Posterising / Designing * Modeling / Materials / T-Shirts Icons VOCAB: Gnomon = Greek One that knows or examines - A Gnomon is the part of a Sundial that casts the Shadow. Analemmatic = Pedestal of a Sundial.

History... ‘...Where Time Begins... ’ Here at Makauri School in Gisborne New Zealand, we have had a wonderful learning experience creating the FIRST Analemmatic Sundial for our city. The Sundial concept celebrates our ‘FIRST’ city status, profile and geographical blessing through this unique creative HUMAN sundial.

49

In October 1884 in Washington DC, USA, their former President Chester A. Arthur invited 41 delegates from 25 nations to what was called the International Meridian Conference

Analemmatic Sundials offer a participatory, educational and fun experience for all ages.

Those gathered, collectively chose the Prime Meridian at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich England, (established by Sir George Airy in 1851) to be the Standard International Measure for TIME.

By stepping onto our Analemmatic Sundial the participant brings the sundial to life, as their shadow reveals the moment in TIME.

Thus creating a line that would pass alongside this place in the Southern Hemisphere that would become today’s City of Gisborne, New Zealand.

We believe this to be a NZ FIRST - as no other city in our nation can hold a genuine claim to being the FIRST City to see the Sun.

Creating this historical point of reference allows us to claim another FIRST experience for our city with our Sundial project.
