Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Parts
-old bike chain
-old bike gears, more holes the better
-Clock Kit ( I like the ReadyMade Magazine Kit)
Step 2: Lay It Out
So lay out some gears and make a cool pattern, or a boring simple one Like I used. Then line your chain up and see if will look work out.
Step 3: Rosie the Rivetter
So now, rivet the pieces together, If you have gears with holes, or cut outs this will work much better.
Rivet a few pieces together and make sure things still line up and look good.
Step 4: Chain It
Now lay your chain out and make sure it will fit together tight. In fact if you can get the rivet in the right spot you can use your gears as a cam to make the chain tight. Put it together with your chain tool.
Step 5: Put the Clock Kit In
Put the clock kit in to an open space in the gears and hang it up on the wall.
