Telling time has never been so fun! This online interactive clock merges both analog and digital versions of clocks so that students can practice telling time with each. Both a fun teaching and learning tool, students and teachers can adjust the controls based on the knowledge and skill level of students.
Using the online teaching clock is simple. Simply drag the hour and minute hands around the clock to adjust the time. When teaching, turn the hour and minute hands on or off to simplify the clock for early learners. The controls are on the top right and left-hand corners. Conveniently, the clock features minute markers around the outside, helping young students learn to read the analog. Dash line circles, which can be toggled on or off in the lower left-hand corner, help students see which minute or hour the hands are pointing to. Turn the digital clock on or off using the button on the bottom right-hand corner. You can also choose between the 12-hour and 24-hour clock using the buttons in the bottom right-hand corner. Finally, add some color and interest to your clock by choosing from the colors on the bottom left-hand side.
The interactive online clock is a versatile classroom tool. Ask students to show a time on the clock and see if they can do it! Or, challenge students to remember what time school ends and have them show that time on the clock. Students can check their own work by toggling the digital display on. You might also display the online clock in your classroom so that students can compare times to your regular classroom clock. For example, you could display the time when you’re scheduled to go to gym class on the interactive clock. That way, students can see how much class time is left. Meanwhile, they’ll practice their time-telling skills!
