Learning to read an analog clock can be tricky at first, especially if children struggle to count by fives. Practice with the Polar Express FREE telling time printable worksheets like these is a great way to help them achieve success.
It is true that, in this age, we have digital clocks almost everywhere to rely on to find out the time. However, reading an analog clock helps us understand how seconds and minutes pass by seeing a clock’s moving parts.
In the 17th century, Galileo first conceived the idea of a pendulum clock, but he never finished it. About nineteen years later, Dutch astronomer, Christiaan Huygens went on to invent the first pendulum clock.
They may seem obsolete, but we can still find analog clocks in our everyday world. We see them in hospitals, libraries, airports, schools, businesses, and even used as decorative pieces in our homes.
It is certainly still very useful for children to learn to read analog clocks. Yours will enjoy these Polar Express themed worksheets to help them practice.
