Learning to tell time is very important, and it is a skill used every day. Clocks are found in our homes, schools, and on office walls. They are there to help wake up for school, alert us that it’s time for recess, and remind our parents it’s time to go home. But none of that is possible without learning how to tell time. We can learn how to tell time by playing games, doing activities, watching videos, and in many other fun ways. Then we can test our skills by taking fun quizzes that show you how much we really do know. Use these links to learn how to tell time and improve your time-telling skills.
