Remember to SPRING AHEAD!
This time of year always reminds me of clocks.
Ever hear the expression “ask him what time it is and he’ll tell you how to build the clock?” Will mention no names here, Dave. Tick tock you really can build your own clock. Here is an educational clock project for the entire family.
Rembember that Sunday March 11th we need to set our clocks ahead one hour marking the beginning of Daylight Saving Time (DST) at 2A.M.
You can also use this as an ideal opportunity for teaching time.
The ability to tell time is a significant milestone in a child’s educational development and does not have to be a difficult nor frustrating experience. Choosing the right educational time teaching tools can lessen the stress. Fun time teaching toys can also help motivate little ones learning how to tell time.
Build a potato clock for a science lesson with potato power. Who would think tasty spuds can also do double-duty as an undercover battery.
Time to get a robot? – no I mean clock….
Inspired by mid-20th century science fiction, Kim is the wall alarm clock that literally “tells” time. Simply press on her button nose, and Kim’s eyes light up red as she states the exact time in a quintessential robot voice. With her gold metallic curls, green speaker mouth and her dedication to announcing the precise time whenever prompted, Kim the Talking Clock is sure to be a favorite with humans everywhere.
