Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Purchase Radio and Play-dough Container
i already had the two mentioned items, but if you do not you will need to purchase a mini fm radio, cheapo one will do the trick and a pack of play-dough, i used the medium size container.
Step 2: Dismantle the Fm Radio, But Keep All of the Pieces
in this step you will want to make sure that you maintain the integrity of the battery compartment to reuse in the play-dough container
i was able to unscrew and cut away unecessary components in order to trim the size of the radio enough to obtain a solid fit in the play-dough container
you will of course need to remove the play-dough from its container
Step 3: Prepare Play-dough Container
after removing the dough, you can line up the remaining fm radio parts to determine where you would like to place the volume, scan, reset and headphone jack
i chose to place the headphone jack in the lid and the volume and controls on the backside of the container
i used a medal hole punch which seemed to work good and was a good fit for the parts
Step 4: Final Assembly
once all of the pieces lined up i screwed them back into place inside the container
i did not use any adhesive in the lid because i will need to open it to change the batteries
with the batteries back in place i placed the lid on the play-dough container and plugged in the headphones to enjoy some playful musak
