Slightly Boring

This website, while harmless, is sort of boring and not worth looking at. It is usefull for programming clocks, though.

Uhhhh...

Too hard! I called my dad over, and HE was stumped! Way too hard for kids alone.

What's it about?

Does anybody really know what time it is? This site does, and it can tell you the exact hour and minute for over 150 cities of the world! Learn about time zones of the world as you explore this fascinating topic.

Is it any good?

Kids with friends or relatives in other lands will love the Meeting Planner. With it, you can find a time for your chat when everyone is likely to be awake, even though the participants may be far-flung across several time zones. And don't miss the calendar section. Want a calendar for the month you were born? Just type in the relevant date and select size, type of holidays to display, and whether you want the moon phases to show.

Another fun thing to do is calculate how many hours, minutes, and seconds old you are, or try the countdown to New Year's, or a countdown to a custom date you can set yourself. It's a great resource, but there are some accessibility issues, including for those who are sight impaired.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how time and schedules affect our daily lives. Families can also discuss the connection that time has with science (e.g., astronomy) and culture (holidays).
