Title: Reading clocks to the nearest 5 minutes.
Time Frame: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Materials: Mini judy clocks, white boards and expo markers, time flash cards, computers, magnets, paper minute and hour hands, “Time cut and paste matching”, document camera, “Tick tock”, and “Around the clock”.
Objectives: Students will understand that… time should be read on an analog and digital clock.
Students will know… The location of the hour and minutes on each clock and skip count of minutes on the analog clock.
Students will be able to….Read both the analog and digital clock to the nearest 5 minutes.
Formative Assessment: Informal assessment during whole class practice and group work as well as “Time cut and paste matching”
Activities and Procedure
1. Introduction: Review the analog and digital clock, where hour and minute can be found on both, zones of hours on analog clock, and the skip count of minute hand on analog clock
2. Whole group activity: Flash cards with a photo of an analog clock are shown and displayed under the document camera. Teacher models how to find time for a few flash cards and write answers as they go. Class practices a few together and writes answers as they go. Students complete individually, writing their answers on white boards. Teacher models how to find time after each question. Flashcards with time digital clocks are displayed as well. Same process is followed, but students produce the time on their mini judy (analog) clocks.
3. Group activities: Groups are determined by mathematics capabilities. Groups change stations every 15 minutes.
- Time games
- Seat work: “Time cut and paste matching” (turned in separately)
- Small groups
- Time to work on seat work if needed
- Producing time on mini judy clocks to the nearest five minutes
4. Conclusion: Students are asked what was challenging and what was easy. Review of digital and analog clocks takes place. Remaining questions are addressed. Students are told they will continue practicing this skill next class as well.
