This resource contains 30 word problems involving elapsed time in hours and minutes within a 12-hour period. The word problems are organized by skill; within each group, the problems increase in difficulty (i.e., larger increments of time). Several problems incorporate charts or pictures.
Students are asked to:
- determine how much time has passed
- determine the end time (given a starting time)
- determine the starting time (given an end time)
- solve an addition/subtraction problem related to elapsed time (*this is not part of SOL 4.9, but it's a good extension)
There are so many options with this set! You can move through the problems one at a time or skip to specific problems as you see fit for your students. These work well as a quick warm-up to your math lesson, an option for morning work, or an activity in a math center/rotation. By solving one problem a day, it’s easy for kids to continue reviewing word problem skills all year long.
Each problem is listed on its own page; it can be projected onto a whiteboard or screen, printed and posted in your room (i.e., on an interactive bulletin board), or even printed to create a set of task cards.
Also included are suggestions for preparation and use, an answer key, and a student answer sheet.
Aligned with Virginia SOL 4.9, but applicable to any classroom.
