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