This "secret message" activity will amuse your students and teach them about elapsed time, with minutes and hours.
Directions are printed at the top: In each row, determine which amount of time is greater. Circle the letter next to the greatest amount of elapsed time. The first one has been completed for you.
At the end, read the message from top to bottom. It reads, "It's time for Math" (The other letters spell "You better hurry").
These 14 problems all involve minutes and hours, with both A.M. and P.M. times.
And all you have to do is copy it! The rest of the prep is all done for you.
