This Timer is Three Timers In One

Online Egg Timer is a simple website offering three countdown timers on one screen. You can set just one timer or run all three at the same time with different settings. No registration is required in order to use Online Egg Timer. Just go to the site, set the countdown timer(s) using the up and down arrows, then click "start timers."

Applications for Education
I have used timers for a bunch of purposes in my classroom over the years. I have used them while playing review games like Jeopardy. I have used them to keep a class moving from task to task on schedule. And I've used them to make sure that I don't go off on too many tangents when delivering a short lecture to students.
