⏰Telling Time to the Minute – I Have, Who Has Game

Looking for a great way to practice telling time to the nearest minute? I Have, Who Has – Time to the Minute is an exciting game that gets kids moving and calling out clues at lightning speed. Your entire class will be practicing telling time quickly and having fun in no time.

To play, give each student a card. They will listen for the time on their card, and when they hear it, they read their card, passing the turn to another player. Play continues until each student has read his or her card.

Through this activity, students will show they can read analog clocks to the nearest minute.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your math lessons. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Help students who need help understanding the concepts by using the fishbowl method before playing: a small group sits in the middle, encircled by their classmates, and models the activity for the students to see. 

It’s also helpful to pre-teach telling time to the nearest minute before playing. 

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Challenge fast finishers to think about how much time would need to be added to their clock to reach a given time.
