Instructional Ideas

  • Implement these worksheets as in-class or homework assignments during a lesson series on elapsed time
  • For children needing extra support with calculating elapsed time, allow them to use plastic analog clocks when solving the problems
Classroom Considerations

  • Worksheets assume children have learned how to tell time and understand the difference between AM and PM
Pros

  • Each worksheet provides a table that lists start times, end times, and elapsed times, requiring students to fill in the missing information
  • Answer keys are provided for each worksheet
  • Worksheets include a wide range of times that address children's ability to calculate elapsed time to the nearest minute
Cons

  • Worksheets do not provide any instruction or example problems to support learners with completing the exercises
