Practice telling time to the nearest minute and calculating elapsed time with this 18-slide teaching presentation.
⏰ Telling Time to the Nearest Minute & Elapsed Time Practice
Reading analog clocks and determining elapsed time can be a challenging task for some students. This presentation aims to step through the process and give students opportunities to practice their time-telling skills.
Students will practice looking at the hour hand and the minute hand on a variety of analog clocks to determine the time. Additionally, students will practice using a number line to calculate how much time has passed when given a start time and an end time.
