Grade Recommendation: 2nd - 4th
Specific Skill: Time
For iPad, iPod, or Both: Both
This app is acceptable for building skills related to telling time. One, two, or three (depending on your settings) clocks fall from the top of the device. Students have to drag the clock(s) to their digital match before the clock(s) reach the bottom. You can customize the minute increments: 1 minute, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, or 30 minutes.
Another activity is for students to match a digital time in clouds to the clock shown before the clouds reach the bottom of the device.
After accurately matching digital and analog times, students must also set the hands of a clock to the time given.
Overall, this is a sufficient time telling app to have. There are others out there (Telling Time HD and Jungle Time) that do more, however.
