Big Ideas: Time is measurable. We use units to measure time (seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, etc). As students become proficient in using units of measurement, it is important that they further their understanding by recognizing that a day is comprised of 24 hours and this is measured on a clock in two 12 hour increments. The time that passes between 12 noon and 12 midnight is called PM and the time that passes between 12 midnight and 12 noon is called AM. This lesson guides students to consider specific tasks that happen in the AM and PM times of day. This lesson also measures time in hours and minutes. Vocabulary: hours, minutes, days, AM, PM, analog, digital Special Materials: commercial clocks if desired printable recording sheets
