By Ingrid Candido

How do you teach students units of measurement? This Miniclip is designed to show how to tell time to the minute and investigate the relationship between units of time.

Units of Time

This Miniclip investigates the features of analogue clocks and the relationships between units of time.

It explains the second, minute, and hour hands on the clock face. It covers how many seconds are in a minute, how many minutes are in an hour, and how many minutes are between each numeral for the minute and hour hand.

It also teaches students how to utilise skip counting by 5 when counting minutes and includes new vocabulary such as revolution.

Telling Time to the Minute

This Miniclip explains how to tell time to the minute on an analogue clock. It includes a summary of the hands on the clock and outlines the two super simple steps for reading the time – identifying where the hour hand and minute hand are.

Students will be taken through examples to practise telling time to the minute by skip counting by five and counting on for the remaining minutes. They will also identify the different ways of saying the time using “to” and “past”.

Telling Time to Five Minutes

This Miniclip explains how to tell time to five minutes on an analogue clock. It includes a summary of the hands on the clock and outlines the two super simple steps for reading the time – identifying where the hour hand and minute hand are.

Students will be taken through examples to practise telling time to five minutes utilising skip counting by five and will identify the different ways of saying the time using “to” and “past”.
