In this unit, students learn how to find elapsed time to the MINUTE!
This unit was designed for students that already have some background knowledge of elapsed time and are sharpening those skills. This elapsed time product is not easy and deals with finding elapsed time in hours, ten minutes increments, and one-minutes going forward and backward in time.
This product is for students that need extra practice with elapsed time in third grade or remediation in fourth grade. I normally use this unit with my high students that already have a great grasp of elapsed time and need something more challenging than just adding hours or ten minute increments.
-FIVE mini lesson or interactive notebook pages
that students can cut out and glue write into their notebooks to reference whenever they need. Students practice learning how to find elapsed time on the number line, with a t-chart, with a trick, with the backwards N, and by using a clock they can cut out and glue in their notebook to practice with! My students love these and refer back to them constantly during our time unit.
that are differentiated for what your students need! There are six worksheets practicing elapsed time on the number line, six worksheets on the t-chart, 4 worksheets on the backwards N, 4 extra "fun" worksheets (matching, fill in the table, etc), and 6 worksheets where students can use any strategy they want!
-12 Elapsed Time Puzzles
that allow students to practice elapsed time in a game setting. If you print out the black and white puzzles, students are in for a challenge trying to figure out which puzzles pieces go together! If you're looking for something easier, print out the colored version for less pieces that may go together!
-2 Elapsed Time Schedules
Students practice finding elapsed time by looking at their daily schedule in their real life and your schedule in the classroom. I have provided two options for both of these schedules giving you a total of four options to choose from. I have also included example sheets to see what it looks like in action!
-An elapsed time game
that my students find hilarious. It's about students that have to stay at school for THE LONGEST SCHOOL DAY EVER! Cut out each of the pieces and mix them up. Students find the START card and have to figure out which place the students should go to in the school based on the amount of time that has elapsed. Students know they have solved the whole thing when the entire school day is in order. There is plenty of blank space at the bottom of each card for students to solve right on the page!
In all, there are over 120 PAGES in this elapsed time unit! Please check out the preview to see it up close!
I have three elapsed time units:
Elapsed Time to the HourElapsed Time to the 10 MinuteElapsed Time to the Minute
All of the units are the SAME except for the times! You get the same worksheets, games, and activities in each unit but the elapsed time you are finding is different!
Why create three units?
Elapsed time is a HARD concept to understand. A lot of students have a hard time diving into elapsed time to the minute right away. I have my lower students practice with elapsed time to the hour and then move them onto elapsed time to the 10 minute, and then finally elapsed time to the minute. It's great to have products that make differentiation easy and not noticeable to the students in your classroom!
