Keep up with the time! This erasable clock face is perfect for practice!
30 to 60 minutes
Learning how to tell time? The hands on this clock are erasable, so students can set the time again and again.
On a white paper plate, students draw a clock face with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. Space the numbers evenly. Add designs around the clock, minute marks, or other decorations.
Students partner with a classmate. Draw an hour and minute hand. Students take turns reading the clock and telling the correct time. Erase the time and continue playing.

Students make a list of activities that they participate in daily and assign an approximate time that they perform these activities. With a class partner, students identify an activity and ask their partners to identify an approximate time for the activity using their clocks.
Small groups of students can study time zones in the world. A member of the group can identify an activity and an approximate time for performing that activity. (Example: Dinner is at 5 PM) Other team members identify the time of that the tine in another time zone when it is 5 PM in their time zone. Each team member will illustrate the time in the alternate time zone on their respective clocks.
Each time a team member draws a time on the face clock, other team members write the digits that make up the same time on a digital clock.
