Learning Time! Unit Plan

This Mathematics unit addresses the concept of time for young learners. It focuses on the days of the week, connecting familiar events to particular days and sequencing events in time order.

It consists of 4 lessons of approximately 30 minutes duration.

The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons in accordance with the individual learning needs of their class.
