## How Long Does It Take? Seconds, Minutes, or Hours?

Are you a teacher struggling to explain the concept of time to your students? Do they have difficulty understanding how long a second, a minute or an hour is? If this sounds familiar, you have come to the right place!

Teach Starter has put together an amazing collection of resources to help make teaching duration and time estimation easier. With these fun and interactive activities, your students can learn about time and how to compare different units.

## Units of Time Worksheet for Kindergarten

Use this worksheet to reinforce your student’s understanding of how long specific events take – seconds, minutes, or hours.

Students cut out the events and paste them into the table provided, depending on how long each one takes.

Note that there is no one “correct” answer as to how these events should be sorted. It is more important that students justify their thinking when sharing their groupings; e.g. one child might say that it takes seconds to eat a snack, while another child might say that it takes minutes.

This resource was created by Lindsey Phillips, a teacher in Michigan and Teach Starter Collaborator.

We also have this resource available in a larger format great to use as a sorting activity in your math center. Click on the link below.
