It's always time for learning with these colorfully animated time games! Telling time is an important practical life skill, and the activities below will turn your young learners into clock-reading pros.

Have a Fun Time Learning How to Tell Time
Telling time may only take a glance at a watch for adults, but it can be a difficult tool for young children to master, especially as they're still learning their numbers and developing number sense. Learning to read a clock requires a combination of memorizing the clock face (including all its elements) and building the math skills to translate a hand position into a number. With these engaging time games, your child will be able to practice both. Beginner learners will start with an introduction to all the different parts of a clock, with challenges to identify the hour and minute hand, memorize the number positions on the clock face, and understand the minute marks in between hours. Once they build a basic understand of the tool, they will be able to quickly jump back and forth between an analog and digital clock and tell the time without having to stop and think. Mastering this life skill is sure to help your students become more independent and adept at time management, and kids are sure to love playing their way to proficiency.
