Telling Time - Clock practice to the nearest minute
Let your students practice telling time to the nearest minute with these addicting puzzles!
**Each magic square puzzle will have students match 12 clocks to the correct time!**
There are 60 puzzles in this product. Puzzles are broken down from minutes :00-:11, :12-:23, :24-:35, :36-:47, and :48-59 of each hour. So there are five puzzles for each of the twelve hours, or the 60 total. There are also two of each puzzle. The first one does not have times around the outside but the second puzzle does. This way you can differentiate the puzzles to best fit the needs of your students.
Preparation and Storage: You will need to print off the number of copies you need. (I recommend printing them on cardstock and laminating them.) I have used these as individual work, partner work, and small group work. They also work well for students who finish early or for use during center time. Cut the magic squares out and put them into plastic baggies for students’ use. I put each set in its own plastic baggie. Then I put all of these baggies and one original sheet in a manila envelope with the name of the activity on the front. This way I have the answer key and all materials readily available. Directions to Play: Give students the cut-up magic square sheet. Tell them they need to put the square back together. The first time you have the students complete one of these, I suggest drawing out a 3x3 square on the board so they understand what it should look like. You can also give them the hint (because I have found some do not figure this out!) that the clocks will all be facing the correct direction. Correcting Student Work: To easily check a student’s completed work, keep an original copy of the magic square sheet they are working on. This way you can immediately check to see if the graphics are in the correct order or not.
