Turkey Time Paper Plate Clock

Here is a simple and fun Thanksgiving Project to make with the kids. The kids can use the clock all month to practice their Telling Time skills.

I found these turkey paper plates at the supermarket but you could use a solid color plate and have students draw a fun turkey in the middle.

The felt numbers were purchased at a craft store (with a discount coupon). This particular set needed to be glued on the plate but most packages of numbers already have a sticky backing.

The clock hands were cut from craft foam purchased at the dollar store and the brass fastener was bought in a box at Staples but can also be purchased at supermarkets, drug stores, etc.

Many students have difficulty learning to tell time with analog clocks, so providing them with a fun activity where they can make their own clock should be an incentive to practice this skill.
