- Practice using this online analog clock: http://toytheater.com/clock/ Try slowly moving the minute (longer) hand and take note of how this also makes the hour hand move slowly. Remember that if the hour hand is between two numbers, the hour is still the number that is before the hour hand. (Parents if you could help demonstrate this and check for understanding as many students are still struggling with this concept).
