### Time Line

Describe what Emma might be doing from these pictures of clocks which show important times in her day.

### A Brief History of Time Measurement

Noticing the regular movement of the Sun and the stars has led to a desire to measure time. This article for teachers and learners looks at the history of man's need to measure things.

### Order, Order!

Can you place these quantities in order from smallest to largest?

# What Is the Time?

##### Stage: 1 and 2 Challenge Level:

Ruth from Leaden Hall School wrote to us to say:

I started on $20$ past $12$, because that is the earliest one (if you think of it as $20$ past $12$ in the morning).
After, I just followed along, continuing, going down into late morning.

Taya, Jessica and Anna from St Joseph also went from the same starting point.  Here are the times in the order they gave:

12.20
1.25
1.55
3.10
4.05
5.15
5.50
7.00
7.40
9.30
10.45
11.35

Tia listed the times in the same order but started at 1.25 rather than 12.20.

Someone who didn't give their name pointed out that we don't know whether the times on the clocks are morning (a.m.) or afternoon/evening (p.m.).  Could this make a difference to the ordering, I wonder?
