This LEGO clock was another little project we did this week. Jenson chose the activity and had fun finding the parts and working out how they all fitted together. It has been a fun, hands on way for Jenson to learn to read an analog clock.
After some fiddling around with the clock hands Jenson finally managed to get them to move correctly. He knows which one is the hour hand and which is the minute hand. He was also able to easily copy the diagram and place each 2x2 tile in the right position.
I wrote the numbers on the tiles, all the while asking Jenson which came next in the sequence.
He then recreated the analog number in digital format.
We've since had lots of fun playing with the clock!
