# Time - Definition with Examples

## Let's learn!

**What is time?**

Here, a child’s daily routine events have been put in sequence according to the time at which they are done.

A day has 24 hours. We use A.M to tell time running from midnight to noon and P.M. for time running from noon to midnight.

The hour hand, the shorter of the two hands, completes 1 rotation ( 360° ) in 12 hours in a normal 12-hour analogue. The minute hand, the longer hand, completes 1 rotation through 360° in 60 minutes.

Here’s how the minute hand’s movement shows different time in an hour.

## Let's do it!

Instead of handing out worksheets on marking time, ask your child to make an hourly time table for him/herself. Further you can ask them to observe how much time they take to complete different tasks during a day.
