Tick Tock

Toddlers ages 15-36 months explored architecture and clocks in the George Nelson exhibit at the OKCMOA. A cukoo style clock was the perfect way to tie these two things together. First as architects we constructed a house to hold our bird.

Cardstock was the paper choice and a house was cut with two small doors to open.

We color a small bird and glue a feather to the end. We use an accordian type fold to give our bird pop out action. Glue the bird on the folded paper inside the doors.

Now we Design our clock. Cut a circle and two hands. Use a brad and stick through hands and center of circle. Glue down.

We cut more shapes from scrap paper and glued them down. We finished with Crayola Construction Paper Crayons and added final details. We had a lot of fun and here are some of the creations.

You will need:
-Black tagboard
-Cardstock
-Scissors
-Feathers
-Glue stick
-Contruction paper crayons

Erin,

Love your blog! I have a similar cuckoo clock LP that I do with my 1st graders. . .And, I REALLY like some of your differences shown here.

I have a feature on my blog called Lesson Plan Wednesday. I have re-tooled my cuckoo clock LP to include the differences that I like from your cuckoo clock lesson. Would it be okay to feature my retooled LP on my blog and acknowledge my inspiration from your blog? I will of course provide link backs etc. etc. It is important to me that when I am inspired by someone else that I acknowledge that person and credit him/her. Please let me know if you are amenable to this!

My Best,

Amy of http://artfulartsyamy@blogspot.com
