1.4 Measuring Time

You use a scale to measure the length of a book. You use a measuring tape to measure the height of a person. What will you use to measure the time? Can you say the time is 1 inches or 1 feet. No, to measure the time you use a clock. A clock has numbers from 1 to 12 and two hands, the long hand and the short hand. The long hand is called the minute hand and the short hand is called the hour hand.

The clock tells us what the time it is. When you go from your house to the school, the clock tells you how long you took to reach the school. If you want to watch your favorite cartoon on the T.V. at 12 o'clock in the afternoon, the clock will tell you when its 12 o' clock.
