Teach telling the time to the nearest minute and calculate elapsed time with this 18-slide PowerPoint for teachers.
⏰ Telling Time to the Nearest Minute & Elapsed Time Practise
Reading analogue clocks and determining elapsed time can be a challenging task for some students. This presentation aims to step through the process and give students opportunities to practise their time-telling skills.
Students will practise looking at the hour hand and the minute hand on a variety of analogue clocks to determine the time. Additionally, students will practise using a number line to calculate how much time has passed when given a start time and an end time.
