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!
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!)
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your telling time lessons.
In addition to individual student work time, use this math game to enhance learning through guided math groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments.
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, and anchor charts for students to recall past lessons.
➕ Challenge Fast Finishers
Encourage students to create their own set of 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 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.
