# Lesson Plan of Units of Time

## Students` Learning Outcomes

• Read and write time from analog and digital clocks.

### Information for Teachers

• Analog clock usually indicates time using angles. It has a circular scale of 12 hours. it has three hands these are called hours, minutes and second`s hands.

• Digital clock displays a numeric representation of time. Two numeric display formats are commonly used on digital clock. These are: the 24-hours notation and the 12-hours notation with a.m. /p.m.

• The small hand (hour`s hand) of a clock completes two rounds in a day.
• It completes one round in 12 hours and two rounds in 24 hours.

• When the long hand is at 12, it shows the full hours shown by the short hand.
• While teaching the lesson, also consult textbook where and when applicable.

### Material / Resources

Writing board, chalk/marker, duster, pointer/stick, digital clock, digital time pieces/watches, flash cards having pictures of digital clocks showing different times readings, textbook

### Introduction

Q1: Have you ever seen the digital watches?

Q2: in what types of clock, we use hands?

• Show digital and analog clocks to the students and ask the time by reading of these.

### Development

Activity 1

• Provide some digital time pieces/watches to different students and ask them one by one the same question as follows.

Q1: What is the time by your watch?

Q2: Ask them to change time and discuss with their friends.

### Activity 2

• Divide the students into two groups.
• Provide each group with cards having pictures of digital time clocks showing different time readings.

• Ask students to read and note the time shown by each clock on the flashcards.

### Sum up / Conclusion

• It is easy to read the time from a digital clock as compared to analog clock due to its numeric representation.

### Assessment

• Ask students to write / convert given times into digital by showing clocks / watches. Such as;
1. 3 o`clock
2. Half past four
• 8 past fifteen
1. 7 o`clock
