Kid Clocks

Kid ClockMath/Physical Education Activity

Use a pencil and a long piece of string to make a large circular clock on the classroom floor. Yarn or tape can be used to mark this outside rim of your clock. Students will make numerals on large pieces of cardboard and stand in the appropriate place on the face of the clock. Select one student to carry the big hand and one the little hand. Prepare ahead a set of time cards, some in digital format and some analog. One child will select a time and the ones with the hands will illustrate the time. Vary the game by having some cards say things like “advance five minutes” or “time elapsed 35 minutes,” etc.
