Tell Time Activity - Toilet Paper Roll Watches
Cardboard tube watches can help kids learn how to tell time
Not that preschoolers can tell time, BUT, what a great idea, I'm sure this idea could be modified for other applications!Great idea for teaching time! Have each child make one of these. Give each child a sheet with everyone's name on it. They walk around and ask their peers, "What time is it?". Without "telling", they simply show their watch. Times are recorded on the record sheet. When each child has "asked" everyone, meet back and check.
