**Term: 3 ^{rd} Term**

**Topic: Time**

**Behavioural Objectives: At the end of the lesson, pupils should be able to:**

**Give date in day and month****Mention the importance of time in our daily life.**

**CONTENT.**

A clock is used to measure time. It has two hands: the hour hand and the minutes hand.

**Exercise**

**TELLING THE TIME ACCURATELY**

There are 60 minutes in 1 hour. There are twelve spaces from 12 to 12. When the minutes hand of the clock moves from 12 to 1, it covers one space and that space is worth 5 minutes. Since there are twelve spaces and one space is 5minutes. There are:

12×5=60 minutes in an hour.

When the minutes hand moves from 12 to 3 ,it covers three spaces. This is 15 minutes or one quarter of 60.

When the minutes hand moves from 12 to 6 spaces. This is 30 minutes or half of 60.
