FUN FRIDAY: Human clock

Need an alternative to pencil and paper activities as you teach minutes, hours, and telling time? Give your active students a smile by creating human clocks in your classroom. Learners take turns being the hands on a clock by standing inside the hoola hoop. Peers participate by shouting out different times and encouraging the “clock” to correctly position his or her hands. This teacher, Jana Byrd, added hook and loop tape to her numbers so that students could also practice placing numbers on the clock in the right position.
