Teaching and Group Activities for Understanding
Day 1 Teaching
Use 2 children to create a human digital clock. Match quarter past, half past and quarter to, to analogue clock times. Then show times at 5 minute intervals and match digital and analogue. Read times in both forms in unison.
-- Read and express times on analogue clocks and digital clocks.
Day 2 Teaching
Launch the ITP Tell the Time and show 1/2 past 9 on the analogue clock. Choose time increment of 5 mins and press + repeatedly until 10 o’clock. Repeat with increment of 1 minute and show times until 10 past 10. Hide analogue clock and show digital. Show times on this.
Use the ‘Mirror Times’ in-depth problem-solving investigation below as today’s group activity.
Or, use these activities:
-- Play Time Bingo.
-- Order times on analogue and digital clocks.
