Our Time Zones lesson plan introduces students to time zones across the world, with a focus on U.S. time zones. This interactive lesson not only identifies the various time zones but also presents the reasons for their use in the United States. During this lesson, students are asked to attach clock hands to clocks according to their time zones in order to demonstrate that they understand the relationships between U.S. time zones. Students are also asked to answer questions based on a given map and the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and give reasons for the time zones of the United States and become aware of time zones across the world.
