I teach third grade and have 19 aspiring mathematicians. However, they always get stumped when it comes to telling time on analog clocks. The clocks provided by our school do not show how the hour hand moves as minutes pass. Such an essential concept can't be grasped without clocks that allow real demonstrations. I am asking for a geared clock set for my classroom that helps children really see how time works. In addition, I would like to have a large demo clock to work with as I am teaching. This opens the door for students to read analog clocks to the minute in preparation for real life. Thank you in advance for considering my proposal.
