Reflection: Real World Applications It's Movie Time! - Section 2: Activity


My students really liked this activity because it connected time to the real world. They all love movies and can understand that movies start at specific times so this was a way for them to translate what they know about time to a movie schedule.

It's amazing how just a little personalization makes students more interested, even excited, about their work. This lesson is an example of how easy it was to acknowledge them as people, as well as learners.

The next step for us will be to create word problems based on times as we become increasingly familiar with telling time correctly.
