Children's logical-mathematical and personal intelligence is enhanced by this creative project when combining making a self-portrait with a wall clock. Children gain greater self-esteem (self-wise) when depicting themselves. Furthermore, their logical-mathematical intelligence is enhanced when working with numbers.
Guide step 1
Step 1.
Make a 8 mm hole in the middle of the canvas using a drill.
Guide step 2
Step 2.
Make a rough design with a hard pencil – here we have drawn a portrait.
Guide step 3
Step 3.
Paint the portrait according to your taste using matt A-Color acrylic paint. Leave to dry.
Guide step 4
Step 4.
Use a craft knife to remove any unevenness from the drilled hole on the front and back.
Guide step 5
Step 5.
Attach the clock mechanism through the hole: pass the screw thread of the clock through from the back of the canvas. Now attach the dial and then the nut from the front. Tighten the nut.
Guide step 6
Step 6.
Attach the hands on top of the screw thread; the small hand (the hour hand) first and then the large hand (the minute hand). Give them a light push until a 'click' is heard. Now attach the second hand.
Guide step 7
Step 7.
Use the hands as an indicator for where to draw the numbers on the dial. Use the template and draw the numbers with a pencil.
Guide step 8
Step 8.
Outline and colour in the numbers with Uni Posca markers. Use a different colour from the background.
Guide step 9
Step 9.
Put an AA battery in the clock mechanism.
Guide step 10
Numbers-wise
Logical-mathematical intelligence. Enhanced by activities in which children must use their abilities to use mathematics in practice (but also when playing with number theory, equations, geometry, topology).
Guide step 11
Self-wise
Personal intelligence. Enhanced by activities in which children must use their self-awareness, the ability to act and make personal decisions in a way which is adapted to match their surroundings.
