  • 6. Name of Museum Horology is the science of timekeeping. Time is unique in that it cannot be perceived through sensory or tangible experiences in the way other measurement concepts can. The notions of time include seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, seasons, year, decade, and century etc. The Horology set focuses on reading clock faces, writing analogue/digital times, and the language used with time eg, Minute, minute hands, hour, hour hand, quarter past, quarter to, half past and the passage of time. Understanding of time measurement includes: - concept of duration or passage of time - knowledge of sequence and order in time - clock face reading What is Horology?

  • 7. Name of Museum Time involves much more than reading a scale, such as a clock face, where the same digit and divisions are sometimes used to refer to the hour that has just passed, sometimes to the number of minutes after the hour. To then use the same digits to indicate time differently, minutes before the next hour, tends to be very confusing. Even a digital display, which many children find easier to read offers only a momentary glimpse of time and both forms involve developing an understanding of the passage of time. (Booker, Bond, Sparrow & Swan, 2010). Time is, therefore, one of the most difficult measurement concepts for children to understand (Siemon, Beswick, Brady, Clark, Faragher & Warren, 2011) The Issue Back to Room 1

  • 9. Name of Museum The Blue Folder targets the notion of time in connection with clocks as the 'passage of time can be perceived through changes in natural phenomenon, or by the use of mechanical devices, through the audible ticking of a clock, the visible movements of clock hands or the changing of digital clock numerals' (Booker, Bond, Sparrow & Swan, 2010). The objectives of this folder can be used in conjunction with the Sunflower Clock. The Blue Folder Contains: The Tracking Time Workbook Clock Work and Time on Your Side These BLMs have the objectives to teach: Telling time to the half hour, quarter hour and time before the hour, Day and Night, elapsed time and days in a month, Introduction of digital clocks The Blue Folder Insert Artifact Picture Here Back to Room 1
  • 10. Name of Museum Ebert, Ebert and Bentley state that 'The preference today is for teachers to provide appropriate instruction for all students through differentiating instruction in a heterogeneous classroom.' (Education.com). The Green Folder has been created to assist in inclusion for learners. It can be used over a variety of grades or it could focus on the diverse learners in the class. The Green Folder Introduces learners to beginning to write time on digital and analogue clocks, calendars, o'clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to time. The Green Folder contains: Time to Tell Time Watch Time Time 2 Tell Time The Green Folder Insert Artifact Picture Here Back to Room 2
  • 11. Name of Museum The 21st century demands that the role of a Learning Manager is to achieve learning outcomes for all learners (Knight & Lynch, 2010). For effective learning to occur, students need to be actively involved (McInerney & McInerney, 1994). To assist you to do this lesson plans have been created for you to adapt to your schools learning design process. The Purple Folder contains lesson plan ideas that focus on the following objectives: Introduce minutes in an hour, telling time with non conventional time pieces, counting in 5 minutes and elapsed time, telling time to the half hour, quarter hour and time before the hour and open ended time questions which can be used a focus questions.

  • 12. Name of Museum The Sunflower Clock has removable petals. This allows the user to focus on particular times such as quarter past, half past and quarter to. Other focuses could include 10 minute blocks or 20 minute blocks. It could also be used as a hands on tool for learners The Sunflower Clock Back to Room 2
  • 13. Name of Museum The Horology Set is builds on initial learning experiences associated with the passing and sequencing of time involving the division of days and weeks, extending students to the passing and sequencing of time, and broadens to reading of time with standard (clocks) and non standard (hourglass and sundials) time units. The Horology Set has been based on the research from Booker et al that time is about perceiving and identifying the attribute, comparing and ordering, and measuring using non-standard units.(pg 510) Why The Horology Set?
