Description

Hands-on sorts are an awesome way to engage students in math! Students will use this sorting activity to review calculating elapsed time within a 12-hour period. Use this as a pre-assessment, review activity, or even assessment at the end of your elapsed time unit!

Students will read the word problem, determine what it is asking, and solve it. They'll sort the problems according to what information they needed to find. They can glue the sorting cards on the provided worksheet when finished or you can laminate the materials for long-term use. Heading cards are also included in case you want to use them instead of the worksheet.

What Skills Are Covered?

• determining how much time has passed
• determining the end time (given a start time)
• determining the start time (given an end time)

There are two differentiated versions included in this activity:

1. Word problems without prompts
2. Word problems with sentence frame prompts

This resource supports Virginia Math SOL 4.9, but works with any curriculum.
