• ## What is Time?

Knowing the concept of time is important in planning our daily activities, which include eating, playing and sleeping. This is a concept we use in our daily lives. We have a special tool referred to as a clock that tells us what time is it

The hands on the clock are used to tell time. The clock has three hands: the second hand, the minute hand and the hour hand.

• Look at the short hand for the hour.
• Look at the long hand for the minutes.
• If there's a fast-moving hand, that's for seconds.

So, you see where the hands point, and that tells you what time it is. It's like a special code on the clock!"

To write time, first we write the hour, then positioned a colon (:) and write the minutes. For instance, In 4:20, 4 represents hours and 20 represents mins.

Let's see different hands on a clock:

The minute hand shows the various time in an hour in the manner shown here.
