Week 19: Ojibwe Clock Project

Now that you know the pronunciation and the words for time, we want you to work on making your own Ojibwe clock to study and hang at your home.

Ojibwe Clock

Construction Paper
Ojibwe Time Wordlists
Metal Clasps
A circle shaped bowl
Markers/Color Crayons

Get the construction paper, glue/tape, scissors, and metal clasps

Take the circle shaped bowl and trace around it on your construction paper using the marker.

Using your marker, write the numbers in as a clock. You can choose to print off a list of numbers, cut them out, and glue them onto your clock.

Cut out hands of a clock out of different colored construction paper. Using the metal clasp, punch a hole through the hands and clock and connect them.

Now cut out the time in Ojibwe from your word lists and tape them below the numbers on your clock. You may also do this with the phrases.

Now that everyone has the clock, go over the different times, pronunciation, etc.
