## Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Elapsed Time - Section 2: Activity

Students were able to solve problems with greater ease when they were counting by whole hours, half hours and quarter hours. I saw many of them using their clocks from yesterday to help them think about greater chunks of time.

I want students to have a variety of tools, which they can use as a strategy to make meaning when solving problems. I believe that taking the time to create their clocks helped them think about elapsed time in a different way.
