RATIONALE

We use time to order events in the past, present and future. We also use it to make comparisons and measure the speed at which things move. If you wanted to measure time you could use a watch, clock, hourglass or even a sundial. There are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour and 24 hours in a day.

The concept of measuring time will enable the pupils to understand and appreciate the importance of time in our daily life.
