The Tick Tock Game is an activity in JumpStart 1st Grade (1995). It is accessed by clicking on the clock in the classroom, and it is intended to reinforce time skills for first graders.


The Tick Tock Game is essentially a board game where two players take turns moving their pieces across the board. The first player to reach the end wins.


At the beginning of the activity, the player chooses whether they would like to play with another player, or play with Frankie. In either case, the game play is basically the same. Both players take turns clicking on the blue analog clock. When the clock is clicked, it will spin to a certain time. Then the player has to find the space the on the board that displays the same time as the analog clock. When the player clicks on the correct space, their piece will be moved there. If the player chooses incorrectly, they will not get to move for that turn. The spaces on the board have times of thirty minute intervals ranging from 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM. The first player to reach the end wins.
