Time telling

Reading a Clock

A clock is a device used to tell time. Clocks measure time in hours and minutes, and have an hour hand (that moves forward one clock number every hour) and a minute hand (that moves forward one tick every minute—it moves forward one clock number every 5 minutes). 

A clock is split up into 12 sections, and each section is worth 5 minutes (because 5 x 12 = 60, and there are 60 minutes in an hour). One complete trip around the clock by the minute hand means that one hour has passed. 

When you read a clock, you look at the hour hand first, and then you look at the minute hand. The hour hand is shorter, and the minute hand is longer—this is how you tell them apart.
