In previous lessons, students learned to tell time to the nearest 5 minutes using analog clocks.
In this lesson, students practice telling time to the nearest 5 minutes. Students recognize that the hour hand goes around the clock twice each day, so a.m. and p.m. are used to distinguish between morning and night. Students relate a.m. and p.m. to specific times and activities during the day.
Activity 1: What is the Time of Day?
- Label times using a.m. and p.m.
- Read and write time to the nearest 5-minute interval on analog and digital clocks.

- Create the Hours in a Day Timeline to display to students in the launch.
- Label the representation as “1 day.”
