Sunflower Clock

Lesson #12104

Make telling time easy and pretty with this sunny clock.

Grade Level:

The five-minute markers on the sunflower clock help students recognize (and say out loud) the time on a clock.

Students will easily see how each hour on a clock can be divided into five-minute increments using the minute markers.

The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.

  1. Die-cut 12 Circle 4" shapes from construction paper. These will be the time markers indicating every five minutes in an hour.
  2. Die-cut from construction paper eight 0s and eight 5s, two 4s, two 2s, two 3s and two 1s from the Boss-O! 1 1/2" Lowercase Alphabet.
  3. Colons for time markers can be die-cut from the bottom circle of the 8 in the Boss-O! Alphabet, or a 1/4" hole punch can be used.
  4. When placing glue on the small shapes, use the adhesive part of a sticky note to hold the parts. Tweezers may be used to pick up the small shapes.
  5. Make one Circle for every five-minute time marker by adhering the colon and numbers to a Circle (Main Photo).
  6. Cut by hand a stem and two leaves (one smaller leaf and one larger leaf).
  7. Adhere the stickers to the smaller leaf to indicate the hour hand, and adhere stickers to the larger leaf to indicate the minute hand (Main Photo).
