Starting with a 10-second countdown to get students ready, the video timer features a fun and colourful animation of a little girl drinking from a cup with a straw. The time is also counted down on the screen with the minutes and seconds reflected in bold black letters, so students have a visual to reference as the time winds down.

What Can You Do in 2 Minutes in the Classroom?

Are you trying to quickly think of 2-minute activities where you’ll use this online timer? It may not be the right fit for some activities, but there are heaps of ways our teacher team uses this timer in our own classrooms.

Here are just a few you might want to borrow for your classroom management:

  1. Time Your Gallery Walk Stations — Whether you allow students to wander your gallery walk in small groups or on their own, timing their visits to each station is a must to maintain order!
  2. Keep Transition Time to a Minimum — Limit the time it takes to transition from one activity to the next with a timer that keeps kids moving.
  3. Provide Time for Think, Pair, Share or Quiz, Quiz, Trade — These cooperative learning techniques are perfect for centering students in the learning process, and a timer can help keep kids on track.
  4. Add a Time Element to Active Games – Playing zip, zap, zoom indoors because it’s raining outside? You can challenge your students not to be the last person to receive a direction when the timer’s 2 minutes are up.
