24 Hours

It's been a while since I posted a craft, so I thought it was about time I did!

Everyone who teaches children will, at some point, have to teach them time. Some students may know the 12-hour clock, some may be more familiar with the 24-hour clock. Teaching the differences, though not impossible, can mean a fair bit of repetition. 

That's where 24-Hours comes in handy.
Give each student a copy of the 24-hour clock and, time permitting, have them colour it in. Then give them a copy of the blank clock and have them write the 12-hour clock on, and colour in if you want them too. Make sure they cut along the dotted lines and fold on the solid edge line.

Once everything is cut and coloured (they don't need to cut anything on the page with the 24-hour clock), give them the clock hands (I've provided many on one page to make it easier for you, the teacher) and have them cut them out. Then glue the 12-hour clock, but not the flaps, onto the 24-hour clock and attach the hands with a split pin.

Your students should then have a working, model clock that they can use to convert the 24-hour clock to the 12-hour clock and visa versa.
