Clocks and Watches

Clocks and watches tell us what time it is. There are many kinds of clocks: wall clocks, alarm clocks, clock radios, grandfather clocks, and cuckoo clocks. Wristwatches and stopwatches also tell the time. Some clocks are displayed on public buildings like banks. Many civic centers and college campuses have clock towers. Being on time is important in the modern world. A popular expression is "time is money". (3-page lesson)
