The little aviator needs help! He’s not sure what time his flight leaves. Help him by clicking on the correct digital time button so that he can take off!
Our online telling time game allows teachers and parents to adjust the controls as children improve their skills. When opening the game, on the left-hand side, you can choose the skills students practice. For example, choosing the “hour” box will only ask students to tell time on an analog clock by the hour. As students advance, they can tell time with greater precision, from the half hour down to the minute. On the right-hand side, choose how the clock will appear and whether or not to show the digital clocks using a 12-hour or 24-hour format. You can also choose to show or hide the minute numbers on the clock. Students will improve their telling time skills by playing this fun game! Encourage students to hide the minute numbers for a greater challenge.
Learning to tell time on an analog clock may seem irrelevant in today’s digital age. However, learning this skill also supports the understanding of fractions and helps students master skills like skip counting by fives. Plus, an analog clock shows time passing more visually, as the minute hand goes around the clock over the course of one hour, or as the hour hand slowly moves from one number to the next. Finally, the mental agility needed to put it all together builds a child’s concentration and perseverance.
