How to Tell Time

Clocks measure time in hours and minutes, and have an hour hand (that moves forward one clock number every hour) and a minute hand (that moves forward one tick every minute—it moves forward one clock number every 5 minutes).

In order to tell time you must know how to count by fives!

This handout will help you you master the skill of telling time.


The hour hand is shorter, and the minute hand is longer—this is how you tell them apart. A normal clock looks like this

If the minute hand is pointing to a clock number, that means the number of minutes is a multiple of 5 (5, 10, 15, 20 etc) and you would give that number as the number of minutes.

NOW YOU TRY! Can you tell what time it is


First, locate the the smaller hand and see where it is pointing.This will be your hour number.Next, see where the smaller hand is pointing.This will be the minute hand.

Click the play button!

Telling time is easy! Practice makes perfect!
