Early examples of such processes include the movement of the sun across the sky, candles marked in increments, oil lamps with marked reservoirs, sandglasses or "hourglasses,” and, in the Orient, small stone or metal mazes filled.

A clock is a device used to measure, keep, and indicate clock is one of the oldest human inventions, meeting the need to measure intervals of time shorter than the natural units: the day, the lunar month, and the s operating on several physical processes have been used over the millennia.

Some predecessors to the modern clock may be considered as "clocks" that are based on. The earliest sundials known from the archaeological record are shadow clocks ( BC or BCE) from ancient Egyptian astronomy and Babylonian astronomy.

History of time measuring devices spans not only modern periods of our history when mechanical engineers enabled us to infuse clocks and watches into our culture, but also goes much further back in time – all the way back to the birth of modern civilization.

There in Babylon and Ancient Egypt, scientists and astronomers first came to conclusion that movement of celestial bodies can be used. Sundials and water clocks. We will never know who was the first man or woman to try to give structure to the measurement of time, although in the Bible, the book.

In the activity, Make a Shadow Clock, students make their own sundials. First, students use flashlights indoors to understand how the position of the light affects the time shown on the clock.
