Here is a project that students can work on to show their understanding of measurement of time. The project includes the directions for students to create their "Dream Saturday". Students decide what they would do on their dream Saturday and create a timeline that covers one day's events. The project ranges from telling time, creating word problems based on their timeline, and later solving elapsed time problems. Students will also write a paragraph describing their day.
I have used this project as a whole class at the end of the unit or I have assigned it at the beginning of the unit to the students who already showed their understanding. Students have loved being creative with their day!
The final product of a timeline is designed to be a vertical timeline to allow students to learn different styles of timelines. I provided students with three large construction pieces (which they cut lengthwise in half and glued together) and a worksheet with blank clocks that they could use to show the different times of their day.
