Telling Time Puzzle - Quarter Hour

PDF | 13 pages|Grades: 1 - 3

A fun puzzle to use when learning how to tell the time to the quarter-hour, using the language of ‘past’ and ‘to’

Print these puzzles on a thicker card for added durability and then cut them out.

Students are required to match the analogue time to the digital time.

Blank cards are also included for you or your students to make up their own puzzle cards to share with others which is a great way to reinforce learning.

There have been 2 different versions provided – one with squiggly lines and one with straight lines. This will help with the cutting of the puzzles.

For those student requiring puzzles at a different level, use our Telling Time Puzzle – Half-Hour or Telling Time Puzzle – To the Minute
