Clockwise 2

Clockwise 2 is designed to give students of most ages practice in telling time. It is presented within a framework of fun and time travel so that students will want to return to the program to practice many times over.

As well as practising how to tell the time, Clockwise 2 helps develop the perception of time - both short term (judging seconds) and long term (history of the earth).

Every effort has been made to ensure the visual nature of the program, and the exercises, appeal to a wide age range. Because of the many teacher control options Clockwise 2 can be used with all primary classes. In special situations the program can also be used for adult education.

The activities present clock time using analogue clocks, digital clocks, and time described in words. Clockwise 2 can also help form the basis of a unit of work exploring a broader understanding of time and time related concepts.

The time adventure gives an overview of history which helps users to form a connected narrative. It also develops chronological understanding which is one of the key skills defined in the (English) History National Curriculum
