Why is time useful? Time has a relation with the word “when” because it tells us when something will happen. If we have an appointment and we need to know when it will be, then knowing the time is useful. If we need to go to school on a specific time then time is useful.
What do we read the time from? Clocks In our world we have digital clocks (they have digits like 0,1,2,3)...... and analog clocks (they have hands)...
How to read the time? Locate the shorter hand, which tells you the hour. In this example, the shorter hand is pointed toward the 6, meaning that the time will be between 6:00 and 6:59.
Find the longer hand, which will point to the minutes. Each of the 12 numbers on the clock face divides a 60-minute hour into 5-minute intervals.
Use the longer hand to find individual minutes between numbers. The long hand often points to the spaces between numbers. Some clock faces, like the 1 below, have 4 markers between each number.
Read the time. The shorter hand points toward the 6, and the longer hand points between the third and fourth markers to the right of 12. The time is approximately 6:03.
