# Exploring Time with 3rd and 4th Class Learning Path

By PDST

This learning path helps learners to read and record time in 5 minute and 1 minute intervals on analogue and digital clock (12-Hour) and rename digital time as analogue time and vice versa. It also helps consolidate learners understanding of time passing in minutes and seconds through the use of online tools and practical problem solving activities.
