A simple lesson for 1st grade math, helping children learn morning hours (AM), noon, and afternoon hours (PM). I use a timeline or a number line with hours to show exactly which hours of the day are AM, and which are PM.
Basically, AM comes from "ante meridiem", which literally means "before noon". And PM comes from "post meridiem", meaning "after noon".
We also talk about the common times to sleep and eat various meals using the time line - even Mathy my mascot mammoth chimes in about that! :)
