We live in a world of cell phones. Every time we want to check on the time, we look at our cell. This engaging activity encourages students to learn time using an analog clock. My students even stopped to take “selfies” with their cell phones!
Give each student a cell phone and a recording sheet. Students must walk around and exchange cell phones. They record the time on their recording sheet, but they can’t move on until the person who owns the cell phone agrees that the time is correct.
This game can also be played as SCOOT. Place one phone on each student desk. Students SCOOT from one desk to another, recording the answers on their sheet.
You can also play it as a scavenger hunt and hang the clocks around the room. Have students search the room for each clock. Place the answer key and some grading pens out to make it self checking.
This Game is also available in different skill versions…
