Interactive Math Activity - Time to the Nearest Minute

Here's a fun, interactive math activity that helps your students practice telling time to the nearest minute. In this fourth-grade math game, students will determine what time it is on an analog clock. Upon completion of this practice activity, students will gain practical experience telling time to the nearest minute.

From the very first question, this math activity will engage and captivate your students with exciting, yet challenging, telling time questions. Students will answer fill-in-the-blank questions and multiple-choice questions. Students may be given a word problem, such as "Jessie left his house at 7:56. He got to the park 11 minutes later. What time did he get to the park?" Students may also be asked, "What time is shown on the clock?" If children get stuck on a math question, they can click the "Hint" button for extra help. The hint may be a written clue, such as "The hour hand is between the 9 and 10. The minute hand is pointing at the 26th mark after the 12." When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will show them the right answer and how to obtain it. For example, the explanation may say, "The hour hand is between the 9 and 10. The minute hand is pointing at the 26th mark after the 12. The time is 9:26." Students can move through the lesson having learned from previous mistakes.

Additional lesson features help students make the most out of their math practice time. As students progress through their telling time practice, the progress-tracker shows them how many questions they have answered out of the total number of questions in the lesson. A score-tracker lets them know how many questions they have answered correctly so far. The speaker icon can be clicked if the students want to hear the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This is a great option for ESL/ELL students and students who are auditory learners.
