World Time Zones


In our World Time Zones lesson plan, students learn about how time zones work and why they are used. Students will use lesson vocabulary and answer questions about time zones and why they exist.


Our World Time Zones lesson plan introduces students to world time zones and the reasons for the different time zones. Most students understand time zones exist, but may not understand fully the reasons for the time zones. During this lesson, students are asked to fill out a chart telling the time in different cities, demonstrating their ability to use the lesson material. Students are also asked to answer questions using words from a word bank, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define and describe world time zones and identify and explain the reasons for time zones across the world.
