The Best Online “Countdown” Timers


I don’t really use automatic countdown timers that display how many minutes and seconds are left until the end of a class activity. I find that just telling students what time an activity will end (we have a clock on the wall) and then demonstrating some flexibility works well for me, plus I typically want to keep the document camera and computer project available for teachable moments and displaying student work. However, I know some teachers whom I respect really like them.

So, I decided to quickly put together a “The Best….” list of them.

Here are my choices for The Best Online “Countdown” Timers:


Egg Timer

Class Tools Countdown Timer

Online Stopwatch

Time Me

Timer Pop

Classroom Screen is a timer and a lot of other things, too.
