Are you looking for a fun way to practice telling time? This is a lesson that includes Kagan's Jot Thoughts and Numbered Heads Together. Both activities require 100 % student participation. Don't worry if you aren't familiar with these 2 Kagan structures. Directions are included.
Students will write down and share what they know about telling time and then practice telling time to the nearest half hour, quarter hour, 5 minute and minute. This is not a introduction lesson, but a way to practice and check students' understanding.
I use this lesson as a supplement to Expressions 3rd Grade unit 3 which includes telling time. It can be used in any classroom where telling time has been taught or is being reviewed.
Students will need a pencil, a pile of 3x3 papers (Jot Thoughts), and a dry erase board, marker and eraser (Numbered Heads Together). The teacher will need this PowerPoint presentation and a way to display it to the class (Interwrite Board, Smart Board etc.)
