Just a Second by Steve Jenkins

Love this book! This will be perfect for my older (4th and 5th gr) students because it is PACKED with interesting tibits of information like:

In one minute a charging grizzly bear gallops one half-mile.

In one second a cheetah sprinting flat out can travel 100 feet.

In one hour 15,913 people are born and 6,933 people die.

The book lends itself to interesting lessons about not just time but other number and measurement concepts.
