Solve It Strips are a FUN, hands-on, puzzle-like, math extension activity that keeps students engaged! These can be used as a math center, an early-finisher activity, with a parent-led math group, or as a mini-assessment. Solve It Strips also make fun home practice, too!
This set of Solve It Strips focuses on telling time to five minutes and elapsed time. There are five strips for telling time to five minutes, two strips for elapsed time to the hour, two strips for elapsed time to the half hour, two strips for elapsed time to the hour and half hour mixed, two strips of telling time by written clues (i.e. 25 minutes after seven) and two mixed strips that practice all of the above.
Students are challenged to use their mental math skills in solving the problems on each strip. Students begin with the “Start” strip and read the clock or time on that strip. That will lead them to the second strip with the time in the box, along with a new clock or time to read. Students continue this process until they end up with the correct time for the “FINISH” strip. Two cover options are included, along with easy directions for storage of Solve It Strips.
See the PREVIEW FILE for an example in action!
