FREE Telling Time Task Cards

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas FREE Telling Time Task Cards - Teaching and Blogging with Time Zones and a Free Mixed Time To the Five Minutes Task Cards.
Blogging and Teaching With Time Zones!
In the modern and technological world, there are plenty of web sites and apps to help you know what time it is in different time zones. But this way is still my favorite. I have these clocks in my home office so I can tell what time it is in the Central and Pacific Time Zones with one look. 

Why is it important for me to know what time it is in those two time zones? I write a monthly blog post for the Bright Ideas Blog Hop {click here to view them} and we all publish at the exact same time so our readers will be able to hop from blog to blog and read all the great ideas. This Blog Hop is published according to Central Time. So if the directions say 9:00 am Central Time, I know I have to publish at 10:00 am here in Florida.

I also love to work and collaborate with my online blogging buddy Michelle at Teach 123. We publish our Tuesday Terrific Teacher Tips each week {click here to view them} as well as Giveaways, Sales and Contests together! She lives in California, so I need to know what time it is there so that I can publish everything correctly. Like this post for example, Michelle is publishing about Time Zones and has a freebie for you on our Owl-Ways Be Inspired blog. So we want to make sure both posts go live at the same time.

By having these clocks in my office, not only do I think they look cool, like the 1950s and 1960s newspaper offices, I don't have to stop working to find a web site to help me get the times correct. This is also something you could put up in your classroom with a World map to give your students real life time examples. Do you have five minutes before lunch, ask the students if it is 4:00 pm in New York what time would it be in Washington state, etc. You can put it at your math center and the students could write task cards for each other with the map and your clocks. Perfect for your Early Finishers!

Speaking of Task Cards, I have a new freebie for you, FREE Mixed Time To the Five Minutes Task Cards, available at TPT.
