  • Show students a digital clock (e.g,. an alarm clock), and have them turn and talk to a partner to describe the clock.
  • Record students observations on the board (e.g., that the clock is shaped like a rectangle, that it shows the time with numbers, etc.). Ask students to name places they may have seen a digital clock, such as on a microwave or cell phone.
  • Show students an example of an analog clock, and have them describe the analog clock to a partner.
  • Tell students that an analog clock is a type of clock that shows the numbers from 1-12 and has moving hands. Invite students to share what they notice about the analog clock and record their observations.
