Learning Objective

Students will be able to properly write and set time with quarter hours using analog clocks.

Introduction

Students will review what they know about analog clocks and discuss their answers to several questions about analog clocks with their classmates.

Instruction

Begin the lesson by explaining the word “quarter” and how each quarter is 15 minutes. Have students uncover to learn more about “quarter past,” “half past,” “quarter to,” and “o’clock.” Then have students watch a video about quarter hours on analog clocks. Guide students in completing several activities in which they practice writing time, such as helping Billy read clocks so he knows when to brush his teeth. Next, guide students in setting analog clocks with quarter hours on their own. Students will use the adjustable clock tool and set the zookeeper's alarm clock so he knows when to feed the lions. Students will circle the clock that shows the correct time and draw the hands on an analog clock to show the right time.

Quiz

Students respond to ten multiple-choice questions.

Closing

Students will think about the time they wake up and sleep on a daily basis. Next, they will then adjust two clocks to reflect both these times. Lastly, they will write the time underneath each clock.
