Big Ideas: Time is a unit that can be measured. Time is measured in different units. The space between numbers on a clock are equal units (5 minute intervals or 1 hour intervals depending on the unit of measure). This lesson builds on students' work with telling time to the hour and half hour in first grade. Opportunities to consider that time passes and that we measure time in different units helps to solidify the idea of telling time and what it actually means. Students will consider what they know about units of time, relate them to everyday activities and link the idea of measuring time to analog clocks. Vocabulary: time, seconds, minutes, hours, analog clock, hour hand, minute hand Special Materials: commercial clocks (optional)
