This product is an exciting twist on the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" hand game. It covers telling time to the hour and half-hour using analog clock faces and is aligned with Common Core Standards for 1st grade. There are a total of 24 playing cards. This game works wonderfully as a partner activity, math tub, math center or math station. It works well as a tutoring or enrichment activity too! I also like to use it during math small group or guided lessons by making multiple copies of the playing cards and partnering up my students for play. This is a fun way to practice telling time and is a favorite with my class!
Deal out all cards into two piles face down (one pile for each player). Both players draw a card from their pile. Each player must identify the time shown on the card. Once answers have been given, players lay their cards down to see who has won the round. Rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, and paper beats rock. If a WILD card is drawn, the player may choose rock, paper, or scissors for that round. If it is a tie, both cards are returned to the middle of each player's stack. The winner of the round sets both cards into a separate pile of his/her winnings. Play continues until all cards are gone. The player with the greater number of cards in his/her winnings pile at the end of the game is the overall winner.
***I have this game available as part of a bundle with telling time in 5-minute increments and telling time to the nearest minute here.***

I'm so glad you like them! I'm working on finishing up one for telling time in 5 minute increments. Is that what you mean or are you wanting one for various minutes? I'll be happy to work on that too if there is a need for it. Thanks! :)
