Practice telling time to the nearest 5 minutes by matching 32 analog and digital clock dominoes.
HOUR Your Students Doing Telling Time in 5-Minute Intervals?
Your clock lessons don’t have to be time-consuming.
Instead of being a watchdog, let your students practice their newfound time-telling skills through partner and small group work with our 5-minute interval dominoes game!
To play, pick any card and lay it down in the center of the playing area. Students determine the time on either side and match the cards with the corresponding analog or digital time.
Through this activity, students will show they can tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m. (They’ll also put their skip counting by 5s skills to use!)
Telling Time to the Nearest 5-Minute Game Modifications
In addition to individual student work time, use this maths game to enhance learning through guided maths groups and whole group lessons, or even switch it up and turn it into another game altogether!
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 pairing students in teams to play. Additionally, provide access to previous assignments, posters, or handheld clocks for students to manipulate.
➕ Challenge Fast Finishers
Encourage students to create their own dominoes for a partner to complete. Additionally, players can write the time using words. (For example, 11:35 am = eleven thirty-five in the morning or 35 minutes after 11 in the morning.)
🃏 Upcycle Into Telling Time Playing Cards
When students no longer want to play dominoes, turn this game into a deck of cards! Break out your scissors and cut the dominoes in half. Students can play games like Match It, Go Fish, or Snap, to name a few.
