1. How to Tell Time on an Analog Clock
Watch this video lesson and you will learn how to read the big clock with moving hands that is on the wall of most classrooms. You will see how the clock is divided into hours, minutes, and seconds.
2. How to Measure & Calculate Elapsed Time
Time is constantly passing, but how can we calculate how much time is passing? In this lesson, we'll learn what elapsed time is and explore two ways to measure and calculate it.
3. Reading a Calendar
After watching this lesson, you will be able to look at any calendar, and you will know how to find the day, the month, and the year. You will see how using a calendar can help you keep track of your activities.
4. Identifying Time Patterns
Patterns can be found in our clothes, in nature, and even in our clocks. Time patterns are important to understanding the world around us. In this lesson, you will learn about time patterns and how to identify them.
5. How to Convert Between Hours & Fractions of Hours
In this lesson, learn how to convert time units so no one can trick you when you're given a time frame to do your homework or to clean your bedroom. Discover the basic rule for conversion and practice with time conversion.
6. How to Read Time Schedules
You're off to summer camp, but you have to be able to read your schedule so you can participate in all of your activities! This lesson will teach you to read and understand a time schedule and how to understand elapsed time, a.m. and p.m., and an analog clock.
7. How to Read Timelines
Timelines can teach you a lot about both historical and personal events if you know how to read them. In this lesson, you will learn how to read the title, time periods, and events on a timeline.
8. Identifying & Calculating Time Zones
Knowing the time zones is very important for communication. To be able to identify and calculate time zones, you must know terms like lines of longitude, prime meridian and the International Date Line.
