Repurpose scrap paper! Create a mosaic in the shape of a clock.
Ask each student to select two pieces of Crayola® Construction Paper in their choice of color as well as one black piece. For young students, you may decide to pre-cut the clock face, hands and numbers in multiple colors and allow them to simply choose the color they desire. In this case, please skip steps 2, 3 and 5.
Instruct the students to draw a large circle on their black paper and cut it out using Crayola Scissors. Ask them to glue this black circle on one piece of the color construction paper using Crayola No-Run School Glue or a Crayola Glue Stick.
Instruct the students to measure 1/2 inch (2cm) away from the circle and mark the color paper in a few spots to develop a guide for a larger circle. Ask them to cut out the color paper circle. These circles will become the faces of their clocks.
Next, students begin gluing scraps of color paper onto the black circle, leaving space between each scrap. It is most effective for the students to avoid using scraps of the same color they chose for their clock face, as that same color will be used for the numbers. Encourage the students to glue scraps in a pattern or non-pattern to create a colorful mosaic.
While the mosaic is drying, instruct your students to draw the numbers 1-12 on the color construction paper. Encourage them to make the numbers small enough to fit on the face of the clock. Ask them to carefully cut out the numbers using Crayola Scissors.
Ask your students to glue the numbers on the clock using their classroom clock or a picture of a clock as a guide.
While the numbers are drying, ask your students to cut out a long and short strip of the color construction paper to create the hour and minute hands of the clock.
When all of the glue is dry, ask your students to fasten the strips to the face of the clock using a brass paper fastener. Encourage your students to compare their clocks to the picture or classroom clock as a guide.
Once the clock is complete, pose this question: Can you identify time on your clock? What happens when you move the short hand? What happens when you move the long hand?
Encourage students to bring the clock home to practice telling time with their family.
