Telling the time lesson plan
Elementary level


In this lesson students learn how to tell the time through reading listening and speaking activities. The lesson will start with a guessing activity where students need to match the incompleted pictures with the correct words. In the pictures times are written and once they are finished they will be given an answer key in which they will have completed pictures and times on them. In the second stage they will match the times with photos and they will practice telling the time through some student centered activities such as speaking and listening activities.
