Let’s brainstorm: Why do we use time? When do we use time?
We have two kinds of clocks. This is a digital clock. The digital clock has the hour first and the minute last. A colon separates the hour from the minute. This is an analog clock. An analog clock has two hands. These hands are called the hour hand and the minute hand
This is an analog clock. An analog clock has two hands.
The hour hand is the short hand. We are looking at the numbers 1-12 when telling the hour.
The minute hand is the long hand. We have to count by fives to determine the minute. Count with me.
When the minute hand is pointing to the 12, we refer to that as :00 or o’clock.
