What Do The Hands of an Analog Clock Tell You? Learning to read an analog clock is the biggest challenge for many kids. Young minds get confused when they see three different clock hands. It might get very overwhelming for many children. Instead of handing kids digital watches add convenience in their lives, it is better to teach the kids to read an analog watch as it will create problems for them in the future. The kids often get confused as analog clocks come in a variety of different shapes. The first thing to understand is that the number division on all clocks is the same, whether it's a circle, triangle, or square. Each of these clocks has two hands, and together these hands tell the time. The two hands are of different lengths, and each of these hands tells different data. The shortest hand of the clock is the hour-hand, and it marks the hour. Whichever number it points at is the hour of the day. The hand longer than the hour-hand tells the minutes. The number it points at when multiplied by five gives the minutes past the hour. When this hand points at 12, it completes an hour. These worksheets focus on telling time on analog clocks with the minute on the half-hour or hour mark only.
