Description

Use this hands-on game to practise telling the time, identifying the minute and hour hand positions, rotating clockwise and anti-clockwise and converting to time expressions.

Each student receives a game board and two manipulatives; one for their clock game board and one for the score tracker in the bottom-right corner of the board. Students start on any square of the board they like. On their turn, they must either follow the instructions on their square or, if they are on a cheese square, pick up a cheese card. Each card instructs the student to move to a different square on the clock board. This move determines what they will do on their next turn. As the students collect cheese cards, they must use the time value on the card to fill in one row of their recording sheet. The first student to complete their recording sheet wins the game!

This game offers plenty of flexibility and differentiation options in how to play:

 
  1. Play as a standard board game with students taking turns, or play as a race where each student runs their board continuously until they have completed their sheet.
  2. Each of the four pages of cheese cards gradually increases the difficulty from hour/o’clock times up to 15-minute increments. Include as many or as few cards as you need depending on your class and context. Are your extension students ready for the darker challenge cards with 5-minute increments?
  3. Four recording sheet templates are included for you to choose from depending on time and difficulty level, with students needing to complete either 3, 5, 8 or 10 cheese cards to win the game.
 

Print the high-colour, low-colour or black-and-white options as needed. Boards included for up to six players. We’ve also included printable card backs so your sneaky students can’t peek through the paper! Glue to the back of each card sheet and allow to dry before cutting.

 

Top Teacher Tip: Enlarge to A3 for support students or those who need a little more room to write!

This activity is a great follow-up to Tick Tock on the Clock Telling Time POWERPOINT!
