Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Clock Facts - Section 3: Elapsed Time Using Analog Clocks

Students were very familiar with using analog clocks, even though they had stated they often didn't use analog clocks at home.  Our school uses only digital clocks, and I notice only a few of my students wear watches and those are also digital.  With the prevailing use of digital clocks, I expected the class would be more challenged when telling time with traditional analog clocks.

The students have a solid foundation and prior knowledge of learning to tell time, and they were very comfortable practicing the content in this lesson.
