Time – Duration (Minutes)
I am learning to understand that 1 minute is the same as 60 seconds.
I know I can do it when I have completed activities that last 1 minute.
This week we will be looking at time in a variety of different ways. Today’s focus will be to develop our understanding that 60 seconds is the same amount of time as 1 minute.
What sorts of things can you do in 60 seconds?
Brainstorm/write a list of activities that you can complete around your house in about 60 seconds. Some examples might include: getting dressed, washing your hands, running to your letterbox and back.
Once you have written your list, test it out!
Using a stopwatch, write down the time it took you to complete each task on your list. For example: it took me 33 seconds to run to the letterbox and back.
