that children keep?

each correct response. The team with the most points wins. Quiz
3. Play Time Dominoes. Across 3 by 5 index
cards, draw a line to resemble a domino. Using clock faces, time
in standard notation, and time as "_minutes to __" fill
in each half of the domino. Place all of the dominoes in a pile
face down. Students, in turn, play Time Dominoes. The first student
