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
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Ask students to write / convert given times into digital by showing clocks / watches. Such as;
- 3 o`clock
- Half past four
- 8 past fifteen
- 7 o`clock
- Draw the analog clocks to show the following timing.
- Time to take breakfast.
- Time to play.
- Time to watch T.V.
- Ask the students to solve the questions given in the textbook.
