Fourth graders review skills needed to solve time problems.  In this time measure lesson, 4th graders solve problems of elapsed time. Students follow the steps to solve and then complete problems.
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.
Students 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.
Researching the history of calendars and time-keeping devices can help students make sense of time measurement.
Students explain what a calendar is all about in terms of time measurement. They clearly communicate in oral, artistic, written and nonverbal forms.
Students assess a time-related scenario at a railroad station. They study about the importance of a synchronized time system at Grand Central Terminal.They research various time measurement devices and develop "How It Works" posters explaining their evolution, function and uses.
Here is a terrific lesson plan on telling time designed for 2nd graders. Learners practice how to tell time to the nearest five minutes. They learn how many seconds are in a minute, a how many minutes are in an hour, and how many hours are in a day. All of this knowledge gets put to use by playing online games on the computer, putting together flip books that are about telling time, and doing some old fashioned drill and practice. A fabulous all-around lesson that covers this important topic quite well.
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.  
Students measure a variety of objects using the appropriate measuring tool. In this measurement lesson, students explain the importance of accuracy and precision in collecting data. They discuss the difference between the two.
Tenth graders gain an understanding of various methods (e.g., rock sequences, fossil correlation, radiometric dating) used by scientists to estimate geologic time. Students read in the content area, use note-taking strategies and analyze the advantages and disadvantages of methods currently used to determine geologic time.
Students 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 analyze the effects of time zone differences on how we function as a global community, focusing particularly on the turn of the millennium as a way for students to calculate time zone differences.
Students make a sundial. In this time activity, 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. Students answer discussion questions.
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.
Students study time and how to accurately calculate it.  In this time instructional activity students complete a lab activity in pairs and discuss their findings. 
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.
Challenge your second graders with a worksheet on units of measurement! Not only do they put their measurement skills to the test, but kids practice word problem strategies as well. The second part of the resource prompts students to supply the correct unit of measurement for different tasks, such as measuring the mass of a dog, or the capacity of a bucket.
Fourth graders explore and follow the directions of a recipe to make a fruit smoothie. They analyze various dry and liquid ingredients, and discuss common time/measurement words and terms used in recipes.
