Aztec Sundials

The mask-like middle part of the sundial was made with model magic and painted with metallic gold tempera.   The face was glued onto the middle of an upside down thick paper plate.  We painted all of the plates burgundy first and then they drew on them with sharpie and gold paint. We did some research on Aztec sundials and the symbols used so that the students could choose which concepts they wanted to incorporate.
