Read and Set Time Using Analog and Digital Clocks

- 3rd Grade Math

Up to Grade 2, children learned to tell time to five minutes. The third graders are now ready to learn to tell time to the minute and set time on an analog clock. Unlike regular worksheets, this engaging game lets students have fun rotating the minute hand to set time and teaches them to read time to the minute.


What’s inside?

- Begin by practicing reading time on an analog clock.

- Move on to applying this knowledge of reading time by rotating the minute hand of an analog clock to set a given time.

- Also learn to convert time displayed in the digital (24-hour) format to words and vice versa.


Real-World Application

“It’s time to get up!”

“It’s time for breakfast.”

“Playtime is up.”

Children hear such sentences every day. To be able to schedule their daily activities efficiently, they need to understand time and manage it well. And as is true for all good habits, it is better to start them young!


What’s next?

Now that children are fairly comfortable with reading and setting time, they will be able to learn the concept of elapsed time and measure time intervals in minutes using clock models or number lines.


Cool Fact

Can you imagine how people woke up on time before alarm clocks and smartphones were invented? Well, for those who could afford it, a person called a “knocker-upper” would go around and knock on people’s doors until they woke up. Yes, it was a legit profession!
