Clocks come in many different shapes and sizes.
They are found everywhere.
There are clocks in houses,
on wrists, and even on the
outside of buildings.
Why is it important to be able to tell time?

Each number on
a clock
represents 5
minutes.
Replacing the
numbers with
multiples of 5
why there are 60
minutes in an
hour.
Explore the clock face…
Let’s practice using an analog clock.
Remember to count by 5’s for the minute hand.
Consider this question:
What observations can you make about telling
time with an analog clock?
