# Tell the Time

Learn to tell the time is a great activity to have fun for all the children.

How to tell the time?

 Look at the clock it has two hands. One of them is the long hand. The other is the short hand. The short hand shows the hours and is called the hour hand. The long hand shows the minutes and is called the minute hand. The face of the clock is called the dial. The dial of the clock is divided into 12 equal parts.Look at the clock shown at the right. The short hand is at 6 and the long hand is at 12. The time is 6 o’clock. It is also written as 6:00 in a short way. 6 o'clock

To tell the time we need to see and understand by looking at the clock. Kids can enjoy practicing to tell time by selecting any type of clock and then setting the time on the clocks by dragging the long hand and the short hand of the analogue clock or can also use digital clock by clicking the up and down buttons in the clock.

Parents and teachers can help the kids and guide for telling the time by dragging the hands of the clock forward and backward and also by placing the hands of the clock in different places.

See and understand the concept of time:

At the hour, the longer hand points to 12. The time is indicated by the number to which the short hand points.

The long hand is at 12

The short hand is at 12

The time is 12 o'clock

The time is 3 o'clock

The long hand is at 12

The short hand is at 6
