I'm soooo excited to share with you one of my FAVORITE activities I've created in my new TIME unit!!! Nothing but TIME!!! A Unit on ALL things TIME!
Here is my blog post all about the unit to give you a better look!! :)
Nothing but TIME!!! A Unit on ALL things TIME!
In the 11 years I've been teaching, the same problem always appears, the confusion between the hour hand and the minute hand, even in 2nd grade and up at times. SO, why not make it more tangible?? In this center, your students will spin to see which hand they need to find in the bag. If the spinner (paper clip) lands on "minute hand," the student will reach into the bag filled with hour hands and minute hands and try to pick the correct hand. This forces them to use more parts of their brain and senses which therefore will help them make more lasting connections. This set also includes a response sheet where they color all the hour hands one color and minute hands another to check for understanding!
2 Playing Mats (1 in color, 1 in black/white)
2 sheets of minute hands
2 sheets of hour hands
1 Response Sheet
I hope this makes the difficult task of telling time a little simpler after really making those hands concrete in their minds!
***Stay tuned for the Coin Confusion Set coming very soon!!!***
