Our Daylight Saving Time lesson introduces students to the history of Daylight Saving Time and why it is used around the world. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to cut out paper clocks or draw their own to create a funny picture to help people remember to “Spring forward and Fall back” when adjusting clocks for Daylight Saving Time, utilizing their creativity, and then sharing the finished product with the class. Students are also asked to answer questions about the history of Daylight Saving Time in order to test their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and describe daylight saving time and why it is used, and the origin of DST.
