Motivate your students to learn to tell time through the use of Cuckoo Bird Challenges! Each student creates his or her own cuckoo bird clock with moveable arms. Students are given one challenge for 10 days that requires them to set their clocks to a certain time. Students must pass each challenge, in order to work towards earning a cuckoo bird for their clocks. On the last day of the challenges, students are given their cuckoo birds!!
This packet includes:
- A 10 Day Cuckoo Challenge Powerpoint (editable)
- Cuckoo Bird Clock Template
-Cuckoo birds can be easily made using pom-poms, googly eyes, foam, and hot glue.
-Use a half of a paper plate if you want to make the clocks stand up. Just fold the plate in half and hot glue it.
-Use condiment cups if you wish for your cuckoo birds to be movable, or simply hot glue them to the box for an easy option.
-Print the clocks on cardstock, punch a hole in the hands, and fasten them to the clock with prongs.
