Time Telling (Chronology)

Time Telling

For an Introduction to Telling the Time, see the printable resources below, or complete the Tutorial Here.

The levels below are designed to follow how telling the time is usually taught.
First the O'Clock times are used for reading the hour.
Then we start on the minute hand - in our medium level, we use the hour hand still at the o'clock position to allow the reader to focus on the minute hand, while still reading the hour correctly. This can be quite confusing for those who can already tell the time as 10:55 looks like 9:55.
Thirdly we show the hands as they truly would be on a clock.
