Students explore the evolution of time measurement, and explain the relationship of sunrise/sunset to length of daylight. They collect data and calculations to determine length of daylight during a given day.
Fourth graders review skills needed to solve time problems.  In this time measure lesson plan, 4th graders solve problems of elapsed time. Students follow the steps to solve and then complete problems.
Students explain what a calendar is all about in terms of time measurement. They clearly communicate in oral, artistic, written and nonverbal forms.
Take your time with this lesson. Junior engineers read about different types of clocks and then work together to build a pendulum time-keeper. There are no hints as to how they might go about accomplishing this complex task, so you may want to conduct some research or try a few of your own engineering designs before introducing the activity to your class.
Telling time can confuse some students. This packet includes a straight forward explanation of how to tell time, a poem about telling time, two practice sheets, and an answer key. Note: The reading passage may be too difficult for 1st graders to read, use it as a teaching guide or read it for students.  
Learners examine the potentials, both positive and negative, of adapting an international 'Internet time' system. They create and solve word problems that require them to translate between the current time system and Internet time.
Learners make a sundial. In this time lesson, students determine the time of the day by creating a sundial. They check the time on the sundial, hourly, for one week. Afterward, they explore what happened to the shadows in reference to the clock rock locations. Learners answer discussion questions.
Young scholars explore the evolution of time measurement, to understand the relationship of sunrise/sunset to length of daylight, and to collect data and calculations to determine length of daylight.
Who knew math could help with chores? Real-life situations frame the discussion for solving word problems that involve measurement conversion in the fourth of five videos. The learning begins with a back-to-the-basics review of how time measurements work on a clock. Then a diagram is used to thoroughly walk through each step needed to solve a multi-step time conversion problem.
In this second grade instructional activity your class will practice telling time. The goal is to tell time to five minutes using an analog clock. Your young students count by 5 minute intervals and discuss elapsed time. 
Students experiment with time. In this time lesson, students discuss the importance of time and clocks. They use a timer to find how long it takes to complete activities. 
First graders demonstrate how to tell time on an analog clock and use them for the purpose of solving word problems. In this time measurement lesson, 1st graders are introduced to the analog clock and practice showing times to the hour. Students read several word problems and use their clock to display the elapsed time difference.
Young scholars study time and how to accurately calculate it.  In this time lesson students complete a lab activity in pairs and discuss their findings. 
The mind-bending concept of space-time is further discussed by two cartoon scientists in this second of three animated films. Assign each part and the accompanying Think questions as homework or as an enrichment when working on motion with your physics wizards.
Researching the history of calendars and time-keeping devices can help students make sense of time measurement.
Students investigate time. In this investigative lesson, students run through an obstacle course using standard timers. They record the time and apply this knowledge to problems in math. Students record their predictions, and graph changes. This lesson also refers to creating an obstacle course for a class robot, but is not required.
Use the Internet and library resources to compose a telling time timeline -- a visual history of time. Students will develop research skills and gain perspective about telling time by discovering the history of clocks and time.
In these calculating speed, distance, and time worksheets, 6th graders review information, formulas, and examples, and solve word problems calculating average speeds, distance traveled, time taken, convert time measurements and speeds, and complete distance-time graphs. Students solve 51 problems.
Students review fundamental concepts of time such as A.M. and P.M. and learn about elapsed time. In this Unit of Time activity, students review the basics of how to tell time and then are given examples to figure out how much time has elapsed.
Once your scholars have a grasp on telling time, challenge them to add and subtract intervals using number lines and Judy Clocks. Using a start and end time, learners determine time duration on their own clocks or number lines. A worksheet is included to give them independent practice, and extension activities provide more emphasis on practical use of this skill. If Judy Clocks are not available, simply have learners create their own paper clocks using brads for rotating arms!
