This math activity is the perfect way to engage students, get them moving, and practice different ways to write time to the minute and work with elapsed time both before & after a given time.
The Clock Monsters packet includes 24 cards, 5 student work pages and a corresponding answer key.
Each monster card features a unique monster and a time (to the minute) in either an analog clock or digital clock.
Set these cards up around the class for an all-class scavenger hunt or use them in centers as flash cards. Students will find the matching monster on their work page and fill in the time in its different forms. They will also need to find the time before and after the given time using increments you decide on as the teacher.
You can also use these as a math center or for fast finishers. Use all five pages or mix-and-match to suit your class' needs!
