Fun Facts About Clocks

Click the arrow to listen.

The word 'clock' comes from the French word "cloche" meaning bell.

Clocks run a tiny bit more slowly in a strong gravitational field than they do in a weak gravitational field.

Because your feet are closer to the center of the Earth (strong gravitational field) than your head is, it is actually a slightly different time on your feet than it is on your head.

That is so weird!

We hope you loved chasing that mouse around in this adventure. If you did you will probably like another little critter in Little Miss Muffet.
