Hello! I am Mary Musgrove.

Hello! I am Mary Musgrove.
I grew up in a creek village called
Coweta. It was located near the city of
Macon, Georgia. I spent most of my
childhood learning how to gather wild
plants. We used the plants for food
and medicine. I was also taught how
to farm, cook, and sew clothing.
This is a picture
of the land in
Coweta where
my village used
to be.
• When I was ten years old I moved to an
English settlement with my fathers family near
Charles Town, which is now known as
Charleston, South Carolina.
• I learned the customs of the English settlers
and was taught how to speak English.

• When I was fifteen I moved back to Coweta.
Since I could speak both English and Creek, I
was able to help the Creek Indians and English
settlers talk to each other.
• I started my own trading post where I traded
Creek deerskin for English metal tools and

• A few years later, James
Oglethorpe and his English Settlers
landed in Savannah, Georgia.
Oglethorpe wanted to start a new
English Colony, called Georgia.
This is a picture of my
husband and I. We
were communicating
with the English so
that everyone could
live in peace.
• I became Oglethorpe’s
interpreter and helped him
communicate with the
Yamacraw Creek leader,
• I helped keep peace between
the Creek Indians and the
English Settlers.
• Oglethorpe, Tomochichi, and I
worked together with the
Creek Indians and the English
to start the colony of Georgia.
So When Did All of This Take

Tomochichi, Oglethorpe, and I told time
much differently than you do today. We
did not have clocks to help us determine
what time of the day it was.
Click on the
Television to learn
how time is told by
using clocks.
• Myself and other colonial children told time
using the sun.
• Just like Tomochichi explained earlier, light
from the sun produced shadows on objects that
would move throughout the day.
• It was important for us to know that when the
sun came up it was morning and when the sun
went down it was night.
•Take a few minutes and list three reasons in
your scrapbooks why you think it is important to
tell time.
•When you have finished discuss what you have
wrote down with your classmates at your table.

Click on the clock to learn how to tell
time on analog and digital clocks by
completing an interactive activity!
Who knew learning how to tell
time could be so much fun?
• Now that you have
become more familiar
with clocks we are going
to model our own analog
and digital clocks.
• You will need:
• Pencil
• Glue
• The analog and digital
clock worksheets that
your teacher passed out
to you and your partner.
• Let’s model the times 7:50 and 2:20 on
our analog and digital clock
• Once you have modeled both times on
your clocks, cut them out and glue
them into your scrapbooks.
• What is significant about the times
7:50 and 2:20?
• Write your response in your scrapbook
under each of your clocks.

Time Memory Game
• You and the partner your
teacher assigned to you will
create and complete a time
memory game!
• At this time with your partner,
think of ten different times
and model them on the
digital clock worksheets.
• Once you have come up with
ten different times and
modeled them on the digital
clocks, you will need to draw
the hour and minute hands
on each of the analog clocks
to match the digital times
that you have represented on
the digital clocks.
Time to Play!
• Cut out each of the digital and analog clocks
that you have modeled.
• Mix the digital clock cards up and lay them
face down.
• Mix the analog clock cards up and lay them
face down in a separate pile.
Face Up
Face Down
Rules to the Time Memory Game
• Player 1 will turn over a card in the digital clock pile and
will say the time that is shown on the digital clock.
• Then Player 1 will turn over a card in the analog clock pile
and will say the time that is shown on the analog clock.
• If the two cards reveal the same time, Player 1 will pick up
both cards and place them in a pile next to them.
• If the two cards turned over do not match, then the cards
are turned face down and put back in their appropriate
• Player 2 will then repeat the same process.
• Each player takes turns finding matches until all of
the cards have been picked up.
What would you do?
• In your scrapbooks, answer the
following question.
• How would you teach colonial children
to tell time using analog and

digital clocks?
• Please write three to four
sentences to explain your answer.
What Time Is It?
• Now that you know how to model times of the day on
analog clocks by drawing the minute and hour hands,
you are going to use your bodies to represent the
minute and hour hands of an analog clock!
• You will also be demonstrating physical activity by:
• Hopping
• Jumping
• Leaping
• Completing Stretching Exercises
• Doing Push-Ups
How to Hop…
• To hop you pick one foot up, bend your
opposite knee, and jump landing on the foot
that you did not pick up.
How to Jump…
• To jump you stand on two feet, bend your
knees, and put pressure on your toes by
extending forward and up.
How to Leap…
• To leap you take off from one foot and extend
your legs to land on the opposite foot from
which you took off on.
How to Stretch…
• In this stretching activity you
will be:
• Twisting your body- Stand up
straight and rotate your body
at your hips by moving from
right to left and left to right.
• Stretching up and stretching
down- To stretch up, stand up
straight and reach up as high
as you can with your arms. To
Stretch down, reach down as
low as you can with your arms.
• Touching your toes- To touch
your toes sit down on the
ground with your legs straight
in front of you and reach your
arms to touch your toes.
How to do a Push-up…
1. Lie on the floor with your chest facing the ground.
3. Lay your palms flat on the floor.
4. Keep your legs straight and your toes tucked under
your feet.
5. Straighten your arms and push your body up with the
strength of your arms.
6. Lower your body back towards the floor.
Let’s Tell Time!
• We are going to outside to complete this
• If I have given you a blue tag you will be the
minute hand.
• If I have given you a green tag you will be the
hour hand.
Minute hand
Hour Hand
Your Task
If you are the hour hand, you
would line up with the other
hour hands to make a straight
line pointing in between the 10
and the 11.
If you are the minute hand, you •
would line up with the other
minute hands to make a straight
line pointing towards the five.
You will be modeling the times of a
clock by using your body.
12 hula hoops will display each hour of
a circular clock.
In order to prevent getting hurt, as a
group you will perform the three
stretching exercises that I went over.
(Twisting, stretching up and down, and
touching your toes)
Once you have completed the
stretching exercises, everyone will
stand outside of the hula hoops.
Once a time of the day is called out you
will choose to hop, jump, or leap to
your position of the time your teacher
After you have represented the correct
time on the clock, you will choose to
hop, jump, or leap to the outside of the
hula hoops and perform one push up.
It’s time
to go
• It is important to know what time of the
day it is so that you can be on time to
school, the bus, or baseball practice. Time
tells us whether it is the morning,
afternoon, or night.
• You are going to make a Daily Time
Schedule and record the times of the
events that occur throughout your day.
• Then we will compare some of the times
that each of you experience a specific
event of the day.
Click on the
green light to
• You will record the times of the following events: what time you
wake up, what time you go to bed, what time you eat breakfast,
what time you eat dinner, what time you do your homework,
what time you do chores, and what time you read.
• For each event you will need to fill in the time on a digital and
analog clock.
• Here is an example of what your chart should look like.

Thank you for joining me on this
• I enjoyed teaching you how to
tell time!
• I hope that you will use this
knowledge on how to tell time
using analog and digital clocks
so that you can determine
what time of the day it is.
