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.


Credit goes to Jewish Montessori Activities for the template for this fabulous game. Check out her fantastic website 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.
