Sundials and Snowflakes - How to Make Your Own

SciShow Kids recently published a new video that explains to students how a sundial works and how they can make their own sundials. The video could be the basis for a fun, hands-on lesson about learning to tell time.

For those in cold, northern climates creating and taking sundials outside with your students might not be practical in the snow. So SciShow Kids has a video that is a little more appropriate for winter. That video is How to Make a Paper Snowflake. The video gives directions at a nice pace that students can follow. The video also introduces some science vocabulary that might be new to elementary school students.

Time for Time - Teaching How to Tell Time

If I remember correctly I was in Kindergarten when I learned how to tell time. The concepts of time haven't changed at all since then, but the resources for teaching how to tell time may have changed a little since then. Time for Time is a website providing teachers with lesson plans and worksheets for teaching how to tell time. Time for Time also provides online games and interactive quizzes for students to use to practice their clock reading skills.

Applications for Education
Time for Time is a handy little website for anyone that teaches students how to tell time. The online games are easy for students to access. And if you don't have enough computers for all students to play the games at once, you can take advantage of the offline game suggestions in the teacher section of Time for Time.
