Practice telling to the minute with this roll and cover game
⏱️Telling Time to the Minute – Roll and Cover Game
Rolling dice, matching pictures, and telling time—what more could a kid want? You’ll get all three benefits from this fun dice game.
To play, students take turns rolling a die. When the die stops on a number, the student will read one of the clocks in that line. Place a counter or a manipulative over the clock. Continue play by taking turns and covering the clocks. Try to cover as many clocks as you can!
Through this activity, students will show they can read analog clocks to the nearest minute.
