# Telling Time

#### Teacher Page

The target audience for this Math WebQuest is first grade students. The focus is on the concepts of time.

The following Georgia Performance Standards were used in the development of the task:

M1M2 Students will develop an understanding of the measurement of time.

a. Tell time to the nearest hour and half hour and understand the movement of the minute hand and how it relates to the hour hand.
b. Begin to understand the relationship of calendar time by knowing the number of days in a week and months in a year.
c.  Compare and/order the sequence or duration of events (e.g., shorter/longer and before and after).

Upon the completion of the WebQuest, students will be able to answer the question: Why is it important to know how to tell time?  Students will identify different types of clocks, learn what the numbers on a clock represent, understand the function of the clock hands, and the meaning of seconds, minutes, half hours and hours.  Furthermore, students will  be able to relate the concepts of time to their daily lives by selecting appropriate units (minutes, hours, days, weeks, and months) and appropriate instruments (clocks and calendars) to measure time.
