A common misconception is that the hour hand always moves at a faster pace than the minute hand. In reality, the hour hand moves slower than the minute hand. It's important to reinforce this concept during the lesson.

To help students understand the difference between analog and digital clocks, you can use visual aids such as pictures or real-life examples. Encourage them to compare both types of clocks side by side and identify similarities and differences in how they display time.

One effective strategy is to introduce terms like 'little past,' 'almost,' and 'half past' when discussing different positions of the minute hand on the analog clock. Encourage students to estimate the time based on these terms and practice reading analog clocks accordingly.
