It's About Time

Project URL
http://teachnet-lab.org/ps101/mrspeluso/Time/timeintro.htm

How it works:
It's About Time
was created to be an online learning center for elementary students learning to tell time. After the students read a short tutorial, they are asked to complete one or more online activities. Students visit an online math dictionary to learn the value of a day, month, week, and year. They construct word problems based on a favorite month; practice writing out time using a.m. and p.m.; and use interactive games to reinforce time concepts and self-assess their progress.  Many activities include a printable worksheet.

Standards addressed:  
Students understand and apply basic and advanced properties of the concepts of measurement, know the approximate size of standard units and the relationships between them, and use a variety of strategies in the problem-solving process.


Materials used:
The only materials necessary to complete these activities are a computer with Internet connection and a printer, along with pencils and/or pens.

The students:
Although this program was created for a third-grade mixed-ability class, students of all ages can benefit from this learning center. This is a great way to reach visual learners and those who are at risk. Although most of the activities are solitary ones, there is an online two-player game. Teachers can also pair up students for cooperative learning.

Overall value:
Teaching the concept of time can be challenging. Students can do this work at their own pace and in keeping with their own ability. The Internet provides students with a great opportunity to learn independently and visually. This learning center is easy to use, with no advance preparation for the teacher. All you need is a computer with an Internet connection and a printer.

Tips: 
It's About Time  is a great tool to use when teaching a unit on time. Since many students struggle with this concept, having students approach this in a fun way can reach almost every type of learner.
