Your students will become experts at telling time to 5 minutes with these hands-on, fun games and telling time worksheets! Each student gets their own printable watch with a unique time on it. These watches are used in all the games and activities to get your students out of their seats and actively practicing telling time to the nearest 5 minutes. 

The unit includes 48 individual watches for you to print out, laminate and have students wear during the telling time activities. Use Velcro to attach the watches and they are good for years of use. The watches are available in both color and black and white to save printing costs.
