This lesson for my 2nd, 4th and 5th graders started out with a power point. (3rd graders were busy on another project.)
After a short discussion of functional art, I started the power point.
One of the slides had the students compare and contrasting the above clocks.
We then talked about how to plan our clock according to the following questions on this slide. Then they each received a worksheet with these questions.
What should our numbers and hands look like.
Students were encouraged to create a pattern or shape for their clock on the back of their worksheet. I did offer tracers for some of the younger and less confident students. I also went on the internet for some free coloring sheets for their requested shapes.
When students were ready to paint, I spoke to them about the different size paint brushes and when to use them.
By the way, am I the only one who doesn't finish stuff??
Thanks for reading!
