a Finnish clock

Yesterday in the wood shop at the Clear Spring Schools we finished making clocks. The teachers wanted working clocks to encourage their students to learn to tell time, so it became a project involving the use of compasses, then layout of numbers on the clock face, some art and some woodworking as well.

The project was also integrated with their study of various countries from around the world. This particular clock shows a breed of dog from Finland, the Finnish Spitz. You may note that this particular clock also used Roman numerals.

The clocks are intended to be used and kept to learn and remember.

Yesterday we were also visited  in the wood shop by the Head of Greenhill School from Dallas, Texas.

Greenhill was founded by the parents of the founders of the Clear Spring School.

Today in the wood shop, our Kindergarten students will make tiny cars to fit in their pockets.

Make, fix and create.
