TELL THE TIME

Ask students to tell the time:

  • Send them up to the board to use the shuffle time and quickly check quiz their time-telling skills.
  • Hide/show numbers to test student estimation abilities of the current time.

User opens a clock and resizes, sets a random time, sets a custom time, and shows and hides hour numbers.
