Price: $2.99
Grade Recommendation: 1st - 5th
Subject: Mathematics
Specific Skill: Telling Time
Levels: 3 (Easy, Medium, and Hard)
Players: 1
For iPad, iPod, or Both: iPad

Students have a choice between 4 games - Free Play, Which Time?, Set the Clock, and How Long?

- Free Play
In this game, students move the hands on the analog clock however they please. The digital clock directly underneath it displays the time they are showing. When satisfied, they click 'Say Time' and the iPad announces the time their hands show.

- Which Time?
This game has 3 levels - Easy, Medium, and Hard. The game asks "Which time is _____?"; students have to choose between 4 analog clocks, each showing different times.

- Set the Clock
Three levels also exist with this game. It's similar to Free Play, but the app provides the time and then the students must move the hands.

- How Long?
Once again, the three levels are found here. Elapsed time is covered during this game. It provides them with a time and asks for what the time would be a certain amount of time later.

This app is well worth the price tag! It gives students options and is quite engaging.
