Tell time to the nearest minute. This will help learners to solve elapsed time problems within the hour.
See the fact file below for more information on the time or alternatively, you can download our 20-page Measurement & Data: Time CCSS 3.MD.1 worksheet pack to utilise within the classroom or home environment.
Key Facts & Information
- At the end of the lesson, students will be able to tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. The learner will also be able to solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes.
A NOTE FOR THE TEACHER
- When teaching time, try the following in your lesson:
- Build on what the learner already knows: they know how to tell time to the nearest 5 minutes, extend that understanding to tell time to the nearest minute.
- Solve elapsed time problems within the hour only (the start and end time will be between the same hour).
- Encourage learners to still use the words quarter past, half past, and a quarter to.
- Tell time to the nearest minute. This will help learners to solve elapsed time problems within the hour.
- On 12 small sticky notes, write the numbers 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, and 60 on each piece of paper. Using an analog clock, stick the sticky notes on the numbers 1 to 12. The note with the 5 will go on the 1, the note with the 10 will go on the 2, and so on.
- This is a good activity to refresh the learner’s memory on telling time to the nearest 5 minutes. Show the learner different times and ask the learner what time it is. Encourage the learner to use words such as quarter past, half past, and a quarter to.
- Once you have done sufficient activities with the learner, remove the sticky notes and string them together, showing the learner that the numbers represented can also represent a number line.
- This is a good way to introduce the concept of the number line. Even though there is no zero on the clock, explain to the learner that we will always start our number line at 0.
