A list of online games for clocks, calendars, and elapsed time

This is an annotated and hand-picked list of online games, tools, worksheets, and activities that you can use to help your children or students tell time or read the clock, practice reading calendars, and calculating elapsed time. I have tried to gather a variety of resources and have personally checked out each website, to make sure it is truly useful for my site visitors!
