Math Center Ideas...Time

I wanted to do some math centers tomorrow relating to "clocks and time".
Does anyone have any good ideas for a 2nd grade classroom?

Thanks!

...matching. Look up edhelper.com. It has great pictures that you can cut up into cards. All you need is to write the answers on cards.

They have different activity sheets as well. You do have to be a member to get the answer key, but I always take what I can get.

I've created a daily schedule for our class and a bunch of questions based on that. For example,

*What time do we begin Guided Reading?
*How long is our math time?
*Draw a picture of a clock showing when recess begins.

You can make the questions as simple or as difficult as your group and standards require.

Time Bingo

Time Bingo
--Make time bingo boards by writing a variety of digital times in the squares. Keep track of the times you use so you can make cards to pull from a bowl/container.
--Place a large clock where everyone can see it or make a large clock on the board.
--Show times on the clock while your students find them on their boards.
--Play the game like bingo.

or

--Give each child a blank five-by-five grid/bingo board.
--Have each child in your room contribute two digital times which you will write on a piece of construction paper that has been divided into rectangles, one for each time contributed.
--Then have your students choose from the list and write any time they want on their blank boards so they each create their own board.
--Cut apart the construction paper rectangles and place them in a bowl/container so they can be pulled from it.
--Place a large clock where everyone can see it or make a large clock on the board.
--Show times on the clock while your students find them on their boards.
--Play the game just like bingo.

I have seen a telling time bingo game at my local teacher store. You might want to get one.
