This week, we began studying time. We started by investigating several types of tools used for time:
-Clock (digital and analog)
Next, we explored our own clocks at our seats and I did an informal pre-assessment by quickly walking around to each student and asking them to show me a time on the clock. I could see right away who had some prior knowledge about telling time, and who did not.
We read several books along the way...Here's a few favorites:
Last, we made our own tools for time. Students had their choice of what they wanted to make. They also had to write about one reason telling time is important. I passed out some clipart graphics for them to refer to during the art project.
