Recognize halves within a circular clock face and tell time to the half hour.
EngageNY 60 min(s)
In this lesson, students recognize the two half-circles on the circular clock face and connect this understanding with the half-hour. Counting by fives to 30, they see that there are two 30-minute parts that make 1 hour, helping them connect the time displayed on a digital clock with the time displayed on an analog clock, and notice that the hour hand is halfway through, but still within, the hour section on the partitioned paper clock. This leads to being able to tell time to the half-hour on both analog and digital clocks.
