Create clever digital and analog Wristwatches!
Create handy digital and analog wristwatches to demonstrate time and the passing of time. Students can discuss the relative time events occur throughout the day. Students will wear the wristwatches and adjust the time throughout the day to reinforce concepts.
Work with individual students to reinforce concepts of time. Students can take digital and analog clocks home for practice. Advanced learners can be introduced to elapsed time.
Assemble and decorate fun digital and analog Wristwatches for understanding time and calculating elapsed time.
