Halloween Paper Plate Clock

Learning to tell time can be a very difficult concept for some kids. Here's a Halloween clock that the kids can create to make learning more fun. Plus by tying in crafts with a holiday project the kids won't realize that they are in fact working on a math concept.



Materials Needed

  • paper plate (decorated or solid color)
  • number stickers or markers
  • craft foam
  • scissors
  • brass fastener
  • crayons

Directions

Use a Halloween decorated paper plate. (These plates were found at the supermarket. The cost was $1.00 for a set of 8 paper plates.) Or, use a plain paper plate and have students decorate the plate with crayons, colored pencils, etc. (Lots of great color plates can be found at the Dollar Stores.)

Have students place the number stickers on the appropriate places on the clock, or write the numbers on the clock with a marker or other writing tool.

With younger students the adult should cut 2 hands for the clock with craft foam and attach the hands to the clock with a brass fastener.

Conductors of Electricity and Electromagnets

My last post shared some ideas for teaching about Current Electricity - Electric, Series, and Parallel Circuits. You can view that post here.


Investigating Electricity

In today's post, I want to share links to 2 activities. In the 1st activity students test materials to see if the materials are a conductor or insulator of electricity. In the 2nd activity students build and investigate electromagnets.

Just click on the links below to read about these activities.

Also, here is a Word Search on Static and Current Electricity to help students remember all those important science vocabulary words that they have been learning with these fun hands-on science lessons.

The Electricity Word Search is saved on my website with LOTS of other fun science worksheets! :)  Just click on the link below.

Hands-On Science - Investigating Electricity

Last week, I did a post on investigating Static Electricity. If you missed that post you can view it here.

Current Electricity

For today, I put together some posts with activities to help you teach about Current Electricity: Electric Circuits, Series Circuits, and Parallel Circuits. These are the lessons where the students will get to light those mini-light bulbs.

Besides using the supplies usually found in the science kits, everyone should wear safety goggles and safety gloves. The kids love to put on the safety equipment. It makes them feel like real scientists and that these will be very special lessons!  :)

To go to each blog post, just click on the links below.
