Lesson Plan : Telling Time As A Form Of Measurement

Teacher Name:
 Mr. Sieka
Grade:
 Grade 5
Subject:
 Math

Topic:
 Understanding time as a form of measurement
Content:
 Discuss the purpose of telling time and the different ways that it is expressed. Key vocabulary will be minutes, seconds, hours, half hour, counter clockwise and clockwise.
Goals:
 Have students understand how to tell time with a digital clock along with an analog clock. An to understand that we use time as a form of measurement.
Objectives:
 Students will have to construct a clock using a paper plate, oak tag and fasteners. They will use these clocks to express different times that will be given to them orally after the construction has been completed
Materials:
 clock, journals, dry erase board, dry erase makers, paper plates, fasteners, black oak tag(arrows), pencils
Introduction:
 Ask students, "why is it important to know how to tell time?"
Development:
 Using a clock show the students the different parts of the clock and what they are used for. Also show them how to count fowards and backwards on the clock.
Practice:
 Using a clock drawn on the dry erase board, ask students what time is on the clock. Have them assess early times and predict later times based on the questions I ask.
Accommodations:
 Students will be allowed to help each other in constructing the clocks. If they finish early there will be a worksheet to do. Other students will be given more time and put together to help one another.
Checking For Understanding:
 Students will be asked a series of times that they will have to represent with their clocks. They will then have to hold the clocks up to show their answer.
Closure:
 Explain that this is the beginning of a measurement unit and that time will be a part of this whole unit.
Evaluation:
 I will be able to determine which students are still having a difficult time with this concept. I will be able to make adjustments in my teaching strategies as the unit continues.
Teacher Reflections:
 The lesson is designed to make time more tangible for the students even though it is a pretty intangible concept. I know that their success is base on my ability to relay the information into context of which they can understand.
