Lesson 1
Big hand, little hand
This lesson helps students identify the two hands on a clock. They will learn how to draw a clock, including where all 12 numbers are located. They will make observations about how the little hand and big hand move around the clock.
Lesson 2
What's the hour?
Students will be introduced to the way the BIG HAND shows us the current hour. Students will practice reading the big hand at various positions around the clock.
Lesson 3
What's the minute?
Students will practice counting by 5s and learn how each number correlates with a number of minutes in an hour. They will practice counting by 5s as they go around the clock. Then students will begin to identify different hours and minutes based on the location of the big and little hand.
Lesson 4
Tell time!
Students will practice drawing their own clocks and times, and challenge their classmates to tell the time they draw. Students will then take a quick assessment identifying 4 different times on an analog clock.
This class is taught in English.
