Grade Levels: K-3

These classroom activities are designed to complement the Time to the Quarter and Half Hour topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Assign each student a time to the hour, half hour, or quarter hour during the school day. When their time comes up on the clock, the student is responsible for recording the activity that class is doing at that particular time. For example, a student who is assigned 10:15 may write a description about their activity or draw a picture. At the end of the school day, collect all the pictures and/or descriptions and put it up in a timeline in the classroom.


On index cards, write different times, such as 9:00, 9:15, 9:30, 10:00, 10:15, 10:30, etc. You may want to add pictures of clocks with the corresponding times or give picture cards to some students and number cards to others, depending on their abilities and needs. Then have each student draw an index card out of a box or hat. Explain to students that they will put themselves in time order without talking. Students can show each other their cards and decide if their times come before or after. You can repeat the activity using A.M. and P.M. times.
