peg_the_shortest_timeThis peg numeracy resource is aimed at pupils in middle/senior classes or SEN pupils. It is based on the pupil’s knowledge of units of time – hours, days, weeks, months, years, seasons etc. The pack contains 24 individual cards, four per A4 page. The pupil has to use a clothes peg to identify the shortest unit of time from the three suggestions on the right hand side of each card.

Laminate all of the pages in the resource and cut up into 24 separate cards. This pack could be an ideal activity for a numeracy station. A pack of 6 sets could be put together, one for each pupil in the group, to be completed at a numeracy station.

This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but who understand units of time in maths, therefore it is a way for them to demonstrate this understanding. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
