Lesson objective: Solve problems by creating an order of events based on information from analog clocks.

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of telling time to the hour and half hour to a real-life situation. Students are asked to interpret information from analog watches to determine an order of events.

Key Concept students will use: 

  • We can tell and write time to the half hour using analog and digital clocks.

Skills students will use:

  • Telling time to the half hour
  • Telling time to the hour (Grade 1, Unit 5)

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 1 (make sense of problems and persevere in solving them) as they interpret information on the watches and determine the correct series of events.

Key vocabulary: 

  • After
  • Before
  • Half hour
  • Hour
  • Hour hand
  • Minute hand
  • Watch
