# Lesson 12

Count by 5 to Tell Time

### Lesson Purpose

### Lesson Narrative

In grade 1, students learned to tell time to the hour and half-hour. In a previous lesson, students learned to tell time using the phrases “half past,” “quarter past,” and “quarter till,” and described the relative position of the hour hand.

In this lesson, students make connections between a number line with intervals of 5 and the distance between the numbers on the clock, which represents 5 minute intervals. Students skip count by 5 in order to tell time.
