Model of Traffic Lights for Class 1

Here is a simple and easy to make model of traffic lights project for Class 1. The picture shown here is the model prepared by my daughter, of course, with my guidance / assistance. 
You can either use a thermocol or a hardboard for the base. Though, thermocol is a non-biodegradable material, yet this is extensively used in making models for school projects, probably due to its light weight and user-friendly nature.

I too used a thermocol base and cut it into a desired shape / size. I helped my daughter to draw and paint the roads. On drying up, I colored the zebra crossings, as it is a difficult task for my 6 year old daughter. Then, I helped her to paint brown and green for a natural look of soil and grass. If you have a creative mind, you can enhance the model by sticking paper-made grass and natural soil.  

Meanwhile, I made the following stuff:
  1. Small buildings with waste boxes and my daughter drew doors and windows with colorful sketch pens. You can even make the buildings more attractive by painting colors or sticking colorful papers. 
  2. Traffic signals with cardboard boxes and my daughter painted these in black. On these, I stuck the round traffic lights in red, yellowish orange and green. For the signal light that is 'on', I used glitter glue for a shiny look. 
  3. A sign board painted in green with white letter and arrow marks.
  4. Sign boards mentioning safety rules on road. For e.g 'cross the roads at zebra crossings only'.
  5. Trees with velvet paper.
I, usually store the cardboard boxes as I can recycle and reuse these as and when required.

When all the stuff is ready, I helped my daughter in sticking these with fevicol on the thermocol base at desired / proper places. Then placed the toy vehicles and toy humans in appropriate places.  That's it. A simple, though not working, model of traffic lights for Std 1 is prepared by my daughter with the guidance and help of her mom.
