Time is one of the most frequently used Math in everyday life. It is so important for students to be able to tell time but more importantly manage their time wisely.
The activities that I have devised in this framework will engage your students in a practical manner where they will need to apply their knowledge of time into compiling an efficient cook book, trips to the zoo and creating new inventions to help tell the time. It will encourage them to dig deeper into how time was first formed (through the Ancient Babylonians) and evaluate tools such as sundials.
As a word of caution, you will need to do your homework thoroughly on the ideas suggested for those extra "smarties" in your class who will want to know everything there is to time.
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking and build upon the work that you have taught them about the subject. Staring with basic skills such as knowledge and understanding, students then will be challenged to apply facts that they learned and apply it in creative ways, which is what they will be needing to utilise once they leave the classrooms.
It is great to be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. The framework allows you to date when they have completed a task so you can keep track of their progress. In the classroom, I like them to complete at least 3 activities before advancing to the next skill set.
Please note that I am from Australia, so there may be some differences in concepts and spelling.
As a heads up, some of these activities will prove to be of more value when completed together as a whole class, and therefore you may want to select those activities and use them as class competitions.
