Subject: Measurement

I am looking for a set of instructions  (preferably on the web) for how to
make clinometer (sextant)

I was thinking of a string and bristle board version. I want to have student 
measure heights with it. I want to use it as a lead into teaching the cosine 
law at the grade ten level.

A lesson plan would be a bonus

All suggestions welcome
