Students have done extensive work with the relationships of time (2.MD.7a), how to read an analog clock (1.MD.3, 2.MD.7, 3.MD.1), and elapsed time (3.MD.1) in previous grades. Note, however, that 2.MD.7a is a Massachusettsspecific standard, but students are likely to know the relationships of time from realworld experience on their own.
If you need to adapt or shorten this lesson for remote learning, we suggest prioritizing Anchor Task 2 (benefits from worked example)and Anchor Task 3 (can be done independently). You might decide not to give Anchor Task 4 independently, in which case it can be consolidated with Anchor Task 2 to be one Anchor Task.
