Students will learn how to use the phrase “half past” and complete several activities in which they practice writing time and setting clocks to reflect the correct time on the adjustable clock tool. In addition, students will learn to differentiate between A.M. and P.M. and watch a video all about it.



Learning objective

Students will be able to properly write and set time with half hours on digital clocks.


Students will be introduced to digital clocks. They will remove the covers to reveal facts about how they work.


Begin the lesson by having students learn about half hours and the phrase “half past.” Have students write the times they see on various digital clocks. Guide students in completing several activities in which they practice writing time, such as writing the times so they are not late for a sports club they joined. Next, guide students in setting digital clocks on their own. Students will utilize the adjustable digital clock tool to show the correct times. Have students watch a video about the difference between A.M. and P.M. Explain the difference, then have them think about different activities and write the times they see while including whether the activity is being done in the A.M. or P.M.


Students respond to ten multiple-choice questions.


Students are presented with 4 racing cars. Each car shows a different finishing time and students will circle the car that won the race with the earliest finishing time. Then, students will write the time of the winner on the provided lines.
