Time, Visualized

One of the things about being connected to educators online that might be frustrating occurs when they’re not necessarily in your time zone.  I sent you a message – why haven’t you responded?

It might be that you’re boring or it may well be that it’s very late where they are and they’ve just gone to bed!  There are definitely conversion web sites to help you out with that or just ask Google.

Heck, with Google suggestions, you don’t even need to finish your question before you have your answer.  

What if you want it all?  What if you want it visualized?  Then you need to head to the Earth Time Clock.

Staring down from space, at the moment, see our beautiful planet and just where the sun is shining.

On the right side of the screen, you’ll be able to see the current times from locations around the planet.

The resource also features a simulation so that you can see the sun rise and sun set for a particular location.  Don’t forget to click on the moon status as well!

Take a few moments to play with this simulation.  I’ll bet that you get all kinds of ideas for how you could use it in your classroom to address curriculum expectations.  If you like simulations, I’m sure you’ll be fascinated by it.
