Use Doreen Cronin's book Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type to give scholars practice calculating elapsed time (as well as a look into labor disputes). They listen to the story, which can be found online using the link provided. Discuss possible solutions to Farmer Brown's typing cow problem, including a limit on the number of hours per day they can be on the typewriter. Use the tips here to guide scholars through this discussion. Small groups examine a cow time card (attached) to determine if any have worked over the eight-hour limit. Have groups present their strategies to determine elapsed time. Extend the objective using the linked interactive story-maker program, where learners can create their own elapsed-time scenario.
