This activity allows students to create their own elapsed time story.
Students write an elapsed time story demonstrating the start and end times of the event on the analogue clocks, as well as within their writing without giving away the duration of time to the readers. Students then hide the elapsed time answer under a flap! Readers are encouraged to engage with the work by answering the time question before lifting the flap to reveal the answer!
An example elapsed time story is given with pictures within the product and as a preview file. Print this out and model with class if needed.
