Time measurement for kids

Tuesday, October 26th, 2004
My colleague from New Zealand, Michael Sampson, and his boys have provided an answer to a pressing question about time management and its measurement.  The question, posed by my daughter, Emily, went like this:

Dear Mr. Sampson, My name is Emily Mack I am 7 years old. I live in California. My favorte days of the week are Wensday, Monday and Sunday.  
The things that I like are playing, Computers and writing stories.

I have a question to ask your boys. Does your clock run clockwise?( left to right)
In the picture you will see our clock.

      Eric's daughter,
      Emily Mack

Michael's son, David, was kind enough to post this response, along with a very helpful photo, in order to help clarify how time is measured down under.
