# Telling Time Worksheets

How to Tell Time on an Analog Clock - An analog clock is the one that has moving hands to tell time. They typically have a round face with numbers 1 to 12 written on them. These clocks also feature two stick-like structures, which are commonly known as the hands. These hands move around the clock to show us time. Generally, analog clocks have three types of hands; the longest one tells us seconds and is known as the seconds hands, the comparatively shorter one tells us minutes and is known as the minute hands, and the shortest one tells us hours and is known as the hour hand.

To tell hours, we have to look at the shortest hand. We notice the number at which the shortest hand is resting on, or which number it just passed. Note that all the hands move from a smaller number to a greater number. And when they reach 12, they start moving from 1. If your hour hand just passed 7, that means that we are in the 7th hour. For reading hours, we look at the large numbers on the clock. The minute hand is the one between the hour and second hands. When we have to read minutes, we do not look at the large numbers, but instead, we read the marks present in between the large numbers. We observe that which tick mark has the minute hour just passed if it has passed 1 tick mark, it will be read as 1 minute.
