It was one of those wonderful accidents...after making a winter collage to hang in our window, we noticed the shadows of birds at our feeder.  

We decided to replace the collage with parchment paper and observe the different shadows that appeared. This turned into a class challenge—can you identify the bird by the shadow it makes?? 

Soon we noticed another interesting thing...each day the bird feeder shadow moved across the window as the day unfolded—always in the same direction!

We wondered together....could we tell what time it is by watching the shadow each day?


The answer was YES!!  

If you want to know what time it is at Schoolmates, just ask an Explorer! :)

It doesn't matter what you call it: 
A Teachable Moment....Organic Learning.... a Happy Accident...here at Schoolmates it's what we do....and it sure is FUN!
