Description

  • This fun ‘Watch About Me’ art and writing activity, is a creative first week back to school getting to know you activity.
  • Invite students to construct a wearable ‘fold out tech watch’ full of interesting information all about them. It’s a really unique and modern way for teachers and students to learn more about each other.
  • They can respond to the selection of template options in a personal and imaginative way, using both words and illustrations to create watches reflecting their individuality – different is OK!
  • If you are short for time, there is a simpler option without the fold out.

Contents

  • Photographs of completed hand drawn examples – use these as posters and inspiration for students
  • A selection of template options, with or without the ‘fold out’ section – choose according to age and ability
  • Visual step by step instructions to help students on the construction of the watch
  • A garland to color and decorate your classroom
  • Question cards for students to explore aspects of themselves further in pairs or groups
  • Additional activities for early finishers – doodling and bookmark making

Materials, equipment needed

  • Choose from, or combine marker pens, colored pencils and writing pens.
  • Scissors, glue stick or double sided sticky tape
  • Pegs and string if you would like to display the finished watches as a garland
  • Use heavyweight paper or card stock for best results
  • A dot of sticky tack or a masking tape hinge, if students would like to wear their watches with a removable fixing.

Measurements

  • Please note, due to the size of these wearable watches, the drawing and writing space may be too small for younger children.
  • The watch templates are designed to fit an older child’s wrist, Grades 4-8
  • The watch faces, measure approx 2 x 2 inches, or 5 x 5cm.
  • The watch straps are approx 1.25 inches or 3cm wide.

Display or Play

  • UK/Aus/NZ version, with ‘favourite colour’ spelling is included in the pack – artwork prints out on A4 too.
  • The finished watches make a fabulous display, on the bulletin board or pegged up on a line as a garland.
  • Students may want to wear and play with their finished masterpieces!
  • I suggest using a small piece of sticky tack or a masking tape hinge to attach them to their wrists. They can then be removed without tearing.
