Solve the tarsia puzzle and practice matching digital times with their corresponding word forms.
Practice Telling Time to the Half Hour and Hour With a Tarsia Puzzle!
Our fun and engaging Hour and Half Hour Tarsia Puzzle will help practice telling time to the nearest hour and half hour. The puzzle is made up on 10 pieces, with different times (digital form and word form) on each piece.
To complete the activity, encourage students to cut apart all of the tarsia puzzle pieces. Students will then look to match corresponding times (ex. half past 8 and 8:30). Students will glue the pieces together in the correct order on a separate piece of paper.
Through this activity, students will show that they can match word and digital forms each time.
