Use this one-hour timer to keep your class on track with their learning as the disc fills in with vibrant colours!

Looking for a Timer for One Hour?

Are you tired of traditional timers that leave students disengaged and unaware of the passing time? Introducing Teach Starter’s range of classroom timers, a dynamic set of classroom tools that transform the concept of timekeeping into an exciting experience for both educators and students alike.

This one-hour timer video features a brightly coloured disc (reminiscent of a compact disc) gradually filling in with vibrant hues as each minute ticks by. With each passing moment, a sector of the disc is beautifully illuminated, creating a mesmerising visual representation of time in motion. As the countdown progresses, the disc becomes a canvas of colour, culminating in a stunning display when the full 60 minutes have elapsed.

Using this one-hour time is easy: just project the timer page onto your interactive whiteboard and press play! Instant 60-minute countdown!

Multiple Uses for This 60-Minute Timer

This one-hour timer can help students develop their time management skills, which all educators would agree is a skill for life, not just for the classroom!

  1. Awareness – One of the key facets of time management is being actively aware of the time that is passing. By providing with a clear and tangible representation of time, our one-hour timer helps students develop a deeper awareness of passing time, fostering a sense of responsibility and accountability for their own learning.
  2. Pacing – One students have an awareness of passing time, they need to be able to pace themselves according to task requirements. By playing our visual timer, students can learn to allocate their time accordingly, ensuring that each segment of the task at hand receives adequate attention.
  3. Empowerment – By empowering students to become aware of time and then pace themselves accordingly, they can become more autonomous, self-regulated learners. That’s a win for both students and teachers!
