Elapsed Time is a tricky concept for lots of kids, while others really get the hang of it quickly.
In this power point presentation students will learn the next step in elapsed time. Students will learn how to add and subtract from a given time, as well as learn how to find the elapsed when given a start and an end time.
This Power Point contains 2 types of elapsed time word problems, on two different levels.
TYPE ONE: Students will practice adding time to a start time or subtracting time from an end time. (Advanced and Beginner)
TYPE TWO: Students will practice finding elapsed time when given the start and end times. (Advanced and Beginner)
There is an introduction slide for each type of word problem with explicit step-by-step instructions on what the students need to do as they work out a each word problem. The next slide is completely animated for you and shows the students HOW to solve the word problems using three different strategies (number line, clock, or schedule).
NOTE: There appears to be OVERLAPPING when you open the power point on slides 3 and 12, however, the overlapping is due to ANIMATION and WILL NOT overlap while you are presenting the instruction to your students.
If you are interested in using TASK CARDS for this concept, I have created matching task cards that are also differentiated according to student level. Some students need to stay with 5 minute intervals while others are ready for elapsed time to the minute. Check them out here: 3.MD.1 Elapsed Time Task Cards Multi-Leveled
