Cuckoo Clocks, 2nd Grade

 My second graders have recently been learning about time in math class.  This seemed like a perfect opportunity to do a cuckoo clock lesson.  I found the idea for this lesson on Cassie Stephen's blog.
This is a very simple lesson.  All you need is construction paper, scissors, glue, and oil pastels.  Students simply cut out shapes to create the clock. I walked them through putting the numbers on the clock, since many students struggle to put the numbers in the correct spot.  After the clock was created, students used pastels to decorate their clocks.
I absolutely LOVE these!


  1. Yay!! This makes me so happy, I'm loving how these turned out. Hurray for sharing lessons :)

  2. Very cute! Your students did a really good job with those Cuckoo Clocks!
