All About Clocks!

Today, we learned all about clocks. We learned what the two hands are called and what they do. They are called the "minute hand" and the "hour hand". The minute hand is bigger than the hour hand. If you put the minute hand on the 12 and the hour hand on the 3 the clock says it is 3 o'clock. If you put the minute hand on the 6 (which means 30) and the hour hand on the 4 the clock says 4:30. We used small "mini-clocks" to practice telling time. We thought the mini-clocks were fun to use!
