These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Elapsed Time topic on BrainPOP Jr.
How Long Does it Take?

Brainstorm different activities, such as brushing your teeth, putting away toys, walking the dog, or doing laundry. Have your child time predict how long each activity might take. Then time the activity. You may want to use a stopwatch or have your child write down the start and end times for each activity and then calculate the elapsed time. Which activity took the longest amount of time? Which activity took the shortest amount of time?

Cook It!

Cooking with your child is a great way to spend time with your child, promote healthy eating habits, and practice math skills! Select a recipe together and time how long each step in the recipe takes to complete. Have your child write the start and end time, and then calculate the elapsed time together. Afterward, help your child add all the elapsed times together to figure out how long it took to cook your dish!
