Can you tell what time it is?

Good Morning!!!!!!

This past week we studied rotation, revolution, and the seasons.  With those concepts we also learned how shadows can help us tell time.  We noticed that in the A.M. our shadows were longer than our shadows in the P.M. part of our school day!  They also noticed the location of the sun was different in the A.M. than in the P.M.  WHY?  Was it because the sun moved?  No, we quickly came to the conclusion because the Earth had rotated!  We also discussed which way the Earth rotates.  I wish we could have come back around 6:00 P.M.  Hmmm...what would our shadows have looked like at that time?
