This ‘around the room’ time challenge is designed to get your students up and moving, reading word problems involving time duration and conversion.


You will display the nine posters around the room and give each student an answer sheet.


Students will follow ‘Noah’ through his school day, from the alarm sounding until bedtime. Noah’s day is linear, however students can begin the challenge at any point, as each problem makes sense on its own.

  • 9 challenge posters. On each poster is a word problem involving time. Important information is highlighted in BOLD.
  • Student answer record sheet
  • Student answer sheet with answers
  • Teacher prep and activity instructions/student instructions.
