Get ready.  Get set.  Go!  Second-graders have been learning how to tell time.  Students began by exploring how long a second is.  Some of the activities they decided they could do in a second is stomp, snap, draw a line, or even swat a fly!  Running across the room however, would take more than one second.  Students then made predictions of how many times they could do an activity in one minute.  They participated in tossing a ball, jumping jacks, lining tiles up  and finding out how many times they could write their name.  Some predictions were overestimated, some were underestimated, and some were right about on.  It was fun to be active and race against the clock!
