Looking for some 24 hour clock problem sheets?
Do you need some challenging time problems for older children?
Then hopefully you have found the right place!

The printable time sheets in this section involve being able to tell the time to the nearest minute, as well as converting times between the 12 and 24 clock.

These worksheets are great to use when your child is confident telling the time and needs to extend their knowledge by solving time problems.

The sheets are also very good at developing an understanding of mathematical language associated with time.

Each sheet has 2 different Time Riddles with 8 possible solutions.

Extension Activity Ideas

If you are looking for a way to extend learning with these Time Riddles, why not...

  • Get children to work in partners with one child choosing one of the 8 possible times and the other child asking 'yes/no' questions. E.g. Is it earlier than...? Is the minute hand on number 6...? Is it later than 4pm? ... etc
  • Children could write their own set of clues down to identify one of the clocks.
