Telling Time with Salvador Dali: A Surreal Art Activity for Classroom Teachers for telling time! Learning to tell time can be boring for kids…so spice it up and teach telling time in a way they will never forget! Introduce students to the surrealist artist Salvador Dali and his famous painting “The “Persistence of Memory,” where Mr. Dali portrays clocks in a very unusual way while teaching or reviewing telling time.
In this telling time lesson, students will paint a surreal/unusual landscape as well as surreal/unusual clocks using Dali and his famous artwork as inspiration. There are telling time handouts, visuals, and telling time worksheets included in this lesson.
If you are a classroom teacher, this is a really unique way to either teach telling time or to reinforce it with lasting results. Students will have so much fun they will forget they are learning (or practicing their telling time abilities)!
