We finished this project a LONNNNNG time ago and I didn't realize that I had never posted it. It's a lesson that I got from the fabulous Cassie Stephens.
We started off by using oil pastels on a piece of paper and then painting brown over it. Then we used combs to scrape paint off of the paper.
After our brown painted paper had dried, I cut it into strips and students wove the brown strips into a paper loom. This would later become the housing for the clock. Then we trimmed the tops of the clocks so that they came to a point.
For the third class, we used a piece of cardboard to print a pattern onto a sheet of paper for the background. We also used fancy scissors to create the trim to our clock.
For the final class, we added the clock and I taught the students how to write Roman Numerals. We also added yarn and the pinecone weights to the bottom of the clock. Last but not least, we added our cuckoo bird!
