Community of Clocks

Project Description:
Participating classes researched a clock in their communities. The clocks were at a school, university, library, church, etc. Each class  submitted a photograph of the clock and provided information about the clock and community. Photographs were sent by e-mail or to the coordinator for scanning. Participants  included a language arts activity that related to the clock. This project is part of a resource developed by the Franklin Institute Online Fellows.
