 Site Review: Time for Time


Site URL:

Content: This site helps younger students learn how to tell time.

time for timeDesign: The site’s design is spartan and a bit amateurish, but because of the sparse content, all of it is reasonably easy to access. A straightforward primary navigation across the top of the page presents dropdowns for the various resources.

Review: Time for Time is certainly a one-trick-pony, but it does that one trick very well. Teachers will find time-based lesson plans as well as customizable time-telling worksheets.

One of the site’s highlights is the class clock. This full-screen page features a large, front-and-center analog clock. The time can be adjusted in increments of one, five, 10, 15 and 30 minutes. It can also be adjusted hourly. As the time is displayed, a sun and moon rise and set, engaging students as they learn about time.

Bottom Line: It really only does one thing, but for teaching how to tell time, this site is as good as it gets.
