Amy Axelrod’s pig family is off to the beach. Maybe they should have planned ahead because they encounter a number of setbacks and the time gets away from them.  By the time they are ready to jump into the waves, the lifeguard is closing the beach.  This is a lesson about clock time – telling time and elapsed time.  Have fun retelling the story as children show the time on their clocks.


Math Topics: Telling time in digital and analog formats.

Figuring out elapsed time.
