Most of us “lost an hour” today, so I thought I’d quickly bring together a list of accessible resources on Daylight Savings Time. Here in the United States, we’ll be reverting to Standard Time from Daylight Savings time on the second Sunday in November.

Here are my choices for The Best Sites For Learning About Daylight Savings Time (and are accessible to English Language Learners):

Here’s an explanatory animated video.

CBS News has an interactive on Daylight Savings Time.
Richard Byrne found a nice video from CBS Fast Draw.

Here’s another video from CBS called Daylight Saving’s Downside.

Reasoning Behind Daylight Savings Time
is an ABC News video.

National Geographic has an accessible explanation of daylight savings time.

Here’s a “Web Exhibit” on Daylight Savings Time.

Shedding a little light on daylight-saving time is from MSNBC.

What’s The Point of Daylight Savings Time?
is a video from USA Today.

Feedback is always welcome.

  3. I love the collection on Daylight Saving Time! We are just starting “cause / effect” paragraph writing in our ESL writing class. I plan to have students read and watch several of the videos. Then, they will write and “effect” paragraph. The fact that there were plenty of positive and negative effects expressed in this collection will give my students the opportunity to practice their organization skills.
    Thanks!
