Learning about time and understanding the importance of time management is such a life skill.  I love how this assignment teaches so many skills related to telling time and how important time is.  It ties to the common core and the expectations for time assessments.  

Technical Remarks:

I love having the students spending time on the computer and using I-Pads.  I know there are other strong Apps for the I-pad to use that can assist in the teaching of telling time.
