Measuring Time STEM Activities

In Key Stage Two, teaching children about Measuring Time can be an exciting journey filled with hands-on STEM activities. As we gear up for British Science Week 2024, here are six engaging activities to spark curiosity and learning in your students.

  1. History Timeline + video: Create a historical timeline with significant events and have the children make a video presentation about a particular era. This activity not only teaches about time but also enhances research and presentation skills.
  2. Calendars and Schedules: Help students understand the concept of days, weeks, and months by creating personalized calendars and schedules. This practical activity can improve their time management skills while learning about the calendar system.
  3. Candle Clock: Explore the ancient method of telling time using a candle clock. This activity allows children to see how time can be measured using the burning of a candle - a fun and interactive way to learn about timekeeping.
  4. Sundial Investigation: Build a sundial and observe how shadows change throughout the day. This hands-on activity not only teaches about the movement of the sun but also introduces the concept of telling time using shadows.
  5. Water Clock: Construct a simple water clock to demonstrate the passage of time using water flow. This activity combines creativity and science to help children understand the concept of measuring time through a unique method.
  6. 10 Second Marble Run: Engage students in a quick and exciting marble run challenge where they measure and compare the time it takes for marbles to travel through different tracks. This activity promotes critical thinking and problem-solving skills while incorporating the element of time measurement.

By incorporating these interactive and educational activities into your classroom, you can make learning about time measurement a memorable and enjoyable experience for your students during British Science Week 2024.
