This game is based on the second grade Measurement and Data Standard (CCSS) of telling time to the nearest 5 minutes. Print out either the color or grayscale caterpillar game pieces. Cut the rectangles apart on the solid black lines so that each piece looks like a domino. Mix up the game pieces and have the student use the card that has the “Start” and caterpillar head in front of them. Place the “Finish” card about a foot to the right of the caterpillar head. Ask the child to find a card that matches the caterpillar segment “twelve o’clock”. The student should find the segment that has the boy holding the digital clock that says “12:00”on it and match it to the analog clock that shows 12:00. Have the child continue placing game pieces next to each other by matching the equivalent times. Depending on your work space, the caterpillar can be in a straight line, or can make a snaking type pattern as shown on the cover sheet and in the photo.
After the child has assembled the caterpillar, check for understanding on the various concepts by asking questions and prompting students to provide responses that demonstrate a deep understanding of the math concepts contained on the game pieces.
