6 DAYS OF CREATION ACTIVITIES

I used these bags to introduce and teach the 6 days of Creation

Exploring light and shadows with flashlights. We made shadow portraits by tracing the shadow of our face with chalk on black construction paper.
Matching different types of candles to their holders

Learning how fire needs oxygen to stay lit. We covered the flame and the fire went out.


I taught the kids how to cut grass, draw a sun and birds.

NOAH'S ARK ACTIVITIES

Credit goes to Jewish Montessori Activities for the template for this fabulous game. Check out her fantastic website jewishhomeschool.blogspot.com. Perfect for getting those little fingers coordinated. The kids had to clip on the numbered clothespin to the correct section of animals.

Noah's Ark out of Lego!!!

Sink or Float? The kids chose different objects from around the classroom and guessed whether it would sink or float. Then we tested it and graphed the results.
The boys made this Teiva - Ark. After they were done, I showed them an image of a rainbow, and they drew their own on top of the Ark.

MILK SCIENCE EXPERIMENT

You need milk, food coloring, q-tips and dish-washing soap.
Pour the milk in a plate and put in a drop of each color of the food coloring.
Dip the q-tip into the soap and place it in the center of the plate. Watch the colors swirl together!


ICE CREAM MATH GAME

The children had to match the cones to the correct topping. On the other side I put capital and lower case letters for them to match up.

SPRING FLOWERS


We made flowers using cupcake liners and all sorts of decorative items. They came out really pretty!

We sorted flowers according to color. We covered paper towel rolls and the children had to place the flowers into the correct color 'vase'.

CIRCLES

We made a circle collage with all different items

SCIENCE: MIXING COLORS

Mixing colors with droppers. A classroom favorite of ours!

LETTER 'L' ACTIVITIES

The children sequenced "Laundry" using fine motor skills by pinning them onto a clothesline with clothespins.

We set up our Dramatic Play area into a Laundry room. We had a washing machine, clothesline, ironing board and a place for them to fold the laundry.
We learned how to fold laundry!
