Many of my students are struggling with elapsed time. I wanted to have a go to activity they could do when they had any free time and also use in my math center! Students use a di to create a start and stop time. Then, they find the elapsed time between the 2 times they created. It is such a great way to have them get practice of figuring out elapsed time!

I cut and paste the directions page of the game below so you could see how it's played.
Materials Needed: Elapsed Time Challenge Card, One Di, your dry erase marker, and a partner.
Get all the materials needed.
The object of the game is to be the first partner to get to 15 points!
You will roll the di to create a start time. You will write the start time on your Card. You will write it and draw the hands on the clock. How you ask? Well look at how to create a time below.
First Roll will be the hour. If you roll a…
1 = Pick either 1:00 or 7:00.
2= Pick either 2:00 or 8:00.
3= Pick either 3:00 or 9:00.
4= Pick either 4:00 or 10:00.
5 =Pick either 5:00 or 11:00.
6= Pick either 6:00 or 12:00.
Now, you will need to roll the di to create the minute for your start time. You will roll the di twice to create a 2 digit number. The first roll is the number in the tens place and the second roll is the number in the ones place. *If you roll a 6 you will need to use the number zero.
An example: I roll the di for the first time and a 5 shows up. I then roll the di for the second and a 2 shows up. The minute hand would be showing 56 minutes.
Finally, roll to see if your start time is AM or PM. If the number is an an odd number it is AM. If the number is an even number it is PM.
Now, repeat steps 2 and 3 to create an stop time.
You will then need to calculat3e how much time has elapsed.
Write the answer showing how much time has elapsed in the triangle.
You will then trade cards with your partner to check their work. If you get it right you get a point. The partner who gets to 15 points first wins!
