Hourglass Classroom Timer & Noise Meter
The following support documents are available:
Giant dual function management tool that functions as a 2 in 1 visual/audible timer and noise controller.
The timer mode adds structure and focus to tests, games and other timed events. Lights fall from the upper part of the timer to the bottom. As "time's up" approaches, lights turn red and a one minute warning tone sounds. When the time is up, sounds plays and lights flash to clearly signal the end of the activity.
The second mode helps to control the noise levels in a room. Rows of lights rise and fall, showing visually the noise level in a room. At the "trigger point", set by the facilitator, a warning sound plays and lights flash, visually signalling the room to quieten.
Requires 4 C batteries. This tool has won various teaching awards.
