This is an excellent learning tool for kids of all ages. This tool can be used in a variety of lessons. There are many different options that can be used for both support and enrichment. This includes six clock faces, elapsed start and finish times, and twelve buttons for changing the time on the analog clock. These buttons are color coded to match the hands on the analog clock, which is a great idea for helping students make connections between the minute and hour hands. 

I particularly like that this tool offers time in three different formats. Students can easily check their understanding and answers at the click of a button.  

One suggestion would be to include a button that randomizes the time of the clock. 

Overall, I think it is a good fun tool that can be used to teach students how to tell and write time! 

Technical Remarks:

Everything is accurate and easy to use. All tools are concise. The clock hands point directly to each minute. When loading or refreshing tool, the analog clock always automatically points to the accurate time. The analog, digital, and sentence formats are always synced.
