5 Minute Interval Paper Plate Clock





Making paper plates clocks to learn about telling time is an easy and inexpensive craft activity.



When the students have learned the basics of telling time and are ready to move on to learning to tell time in 5 minute intervals, you might want to try using 2 paper plates. The smaller inside plate would have the numbers 1-12 and the larger outside plate could show counting by 5s to help with reading the minutes.



Today's clock just needs an extra larger plate. You can also secure it to the top plate using the same paper fastener. Then just use a marker or more stick-on numbers to count by 5s on the larger circle.

Have fun learning about TIME!
