This week, we’ve been learning about using our 5 senses. One of the activities we did was to listen to items that I had hidden inside plastic eggs. (Thanks to my friends on the TT Kinderland blog for helping me out with that one!). I put 4 different objects into 8 different eggs (4 of the eggs had the same things as the other 4 eggs).
First, my kiddos listened as I shook the eggs and tried to guess what was inside. We then created a flipchart and drew eggs on them as my kiddos did the same thing in their science notebooks.
These are my horrible drawings showing 1. paperclips, 2. plastic math tile, 3. marble, and 4. 2 pennies. After we drew pictures of what we thought was in the first 4 eggs, we shook the next four and drew them (the ones shown in green). We then drew lines in our science notebooks to match up the eggs that were alike. The kids wanted to see what was inside the eggs, so after that we opened them up.
