An hour glass, or a sand clock, is a device that measures the passing of time. It consists of two bulbs that are connected by a narrow segment. The hour glass is used to measure how long it takes for the sand inside to pass from one of the bulbs to the other. In this activity, you will make your own hour glass using sand or salt and observe how it works.
