Second Grade Math Game - Telling Time to the Half Hour

Get ready to practice telling time to the half hour with your second grade students! In this online math activity from, your class will put their telling time skills to the test. Here are the learning objectives of this interactive math lesson:

Questions in this second grade telling time game are presented in multiple choice format, fill-in-the-blank format, and drag-and-drop format. As your class works through this math practice activity, several features are available to help them make the most out of their math practice session:

  • A speaker icon indicates the read aloud feature; students can click the button to hear the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This is a great resource for ESL/ELL learners and children who are auditory processors.
  • A score-tracker on the righthand side of the practice screen shows students how many points they have earned in the practice session for giving correct responses.
  • A progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen indicates how many questions students have answered out of the total number of questions in the practice session.
  • A hint button is available for when students get stuck on a math problem. They can click on the hint button to view a helpful written or pictorial clue that will point them in the right direction without giving away the answer.
  • A detailed explanation page pops up on the screen when students answer a question incorrectly. Students are shown the right answer accompanied by an easy-to-understand explanation to help them learn from mistakes.

All of the features above are available in every I Know It math practice session and are designed to equip your students with the resources they need to achieve math practice success.
