If the Kidspriation template is loaded for an Interactive White Board, have the students come closer so they can move the items.
Read the instructions with the students.
Point out the analog clocks first and then show the digital clocks.
Show the example and have students tell the time together.

Have the students look at the digital times and move them to the rectangle space next to the analog time it matches.

Invite a student to come forward and tell the time on a clock FIRST.
