Brief Outline: Students reference a map of the world to answer simple 'time' questions.


Materials Needed:

  • WhatTimeIsIt attachments: One for each student
  • WhatTimeIsIt: Time Hunters (Jame Duckworth Version)
  • Fake clock (optional): Can usually be found at 100 yen shops.


Detailed Explanation:

  1. After the students have practiced the new vocabulary for this area in the textbook, hand out the worksheet and have the students practice repeating after you the name of the cities.
  2. Then, have the students answer the six questions.
  3. Once the students have completed their worksheets, select volunteers to verbally answer the questions (or you can have them write the the sentences on the blackboard).



  • To be left to the discretion of the individual ALT.


Teaching Suggestions:

  • Limit the time to complete the questions on the worksheet to between 6-10 minutes depending on the ability level of the class.
  • This lesson is for New Horizon (book 1, unit 7, part 2, p 60-61) but can really be used for any 'time' focused activity.
