I follow Anne Marie's blog Talking Smartboards and she always has something neat to share. She posts easily accessible interactives that can be used on the whiteboard. All you have to do is take a few minutes to look at the site, turn on the whiteboard and make sure the Cat5 cable is plugged in so you have the internet.
This site is an interactive clock which gives you the current time. I especially like this site because you can change the clock using the buttons at the bottom. Think about using this clock not only to tell the current time but to talk about what time it would be in 1 minute, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or an hour. Students find this concept difficult to understand and this interactive clock might help them!
When you go to the site, you should click on the clock to open the interactive application. Notice that on the home page you will find a student game, teacher lesson plans, worksheets and a wealth of resources to practice telling time.
