Daylight Saving Time

It is not difficult to understand that students may have a misconception that the clocks we use are directly related to Sun time and that changing the clocks will alter the Sun-Earth time relationship. This chapter and story deal with this misconception and also provides an opportunity for children to debate the various questions surrounding the changing of clock time to save energy, help farmers, prevent traffic accidents, and prevent crime.
