Clocks for Kids

Once again, I was inspired by Pinterest to do a project:

Make your own clocks:
We are reviewing for our end of year testing so this was a fun way to review time.
You'll need 2-3 paper plates per child.  It'll be less than $3 at Wal-mart
1 brad
1/2 an index card for the hands of the clock
2 different colored makers

Write the 12, 6, 3 and 9 on first.
Then fill in the in between numbers.
Add the vocabulary words in the middle.
Cut through the lined part of the plate in between each number.
It should be 12 cuts around the plate.
Cut the half of an index card into two skinny strips.
Write minute on one and hour on the other.
Trim the hour hand down and cut points into both hands.
 Poke the brad through the hands of the clock
Put the plates on top of each other and put the brad through both plates.
Lift up each flap and write the minute amount under each number.
I reviewed times with the whole group and then put the kids with a partner.
They asked each other to make times, to read the time, etc.
They loved it!
This was a fun way to review time and it would be a great way to teach time!
