Last night my daughters said, “but it’s still sunny outside” when we told them it was time for dinner. It was then that I remembered that daylight saving time begins next weekend. So next weekend it will be even brighter outside when we start dinner. Not to mention that next Sunday my daughters who already wake up early will wake up even earlier.
I’ll do my best to explain daylight saving time to my daughters, but they might still be a little too young to fully grasp the concept. That said, if you or your students are wondering why we have to change our clocks next weekend, here are few short explanations.
