How to Help Kids Learn How to Tell Time

In this digital age children are needed less and less traditional methods of requiring information. Instead of getting an encyclopedia to find information, kids have Google. Instead of learning how to read a map, we have GPS devices and navigation apps on our phones. One thing is becoming apparent, a lot of kids struggle with telling time from a traditional clock. Why use a traditional clock when they can look at it on their phone? If the satellites go down even briefly, it could mess up all types of systems. It can even be a less drastic situation where the power goes out in the house or the phone dies. It is important for kids to know this basic skill so that they know how to read a clock in the case of an emergency or where a digital clock is no where to be found. Below is a YouTube link that can help you help your child learn how to tell time.
