Why Lesson Planet?
First and second graders explore the concept of telling time in this cross-curricular, developmentally appropriate activity. First, they watch a PowerPoint that explains the minute and hour hands and what it means when the minute hand is "on the 12." You read aloud the Judy Sierra book What Time Is It, Mr. Crocodile? After pupils make their own paper plate clocks (cutting lots of shapes with scissors!), they play a Rock Around the Clock game to practice and have fun.
