I am so excited to unveil my new preschool/kindergarten activities for science that I am working on. I can't get them done fast enough! They are write the room science hunts and they are going to be so cute! I have awesome graphics from Erin Bradley Designs and after huge searches for wild animal photos that don't come with HUGE price tags I have almost finished my first one. I have to print it out in the morning and add photos to the directions and it is a go!
Just to give you an idea of how these science "Photo Finds" will work...I have created cameras with animal photos under them. The activity will be a little like hide and seek. You will hide the paper cameras around the room with animal photos underneath them and your students will hunt, and record what they find on a cute clipboard you will provide them. There are 3 levels of writing this will cover too. My recording/hunting sheets include just making an "X" by the animal photo, tracing the name of the animal, and independently writing the name of the animal next to the photo on the clipboard. I know my students are going to love this. They are always jumping in to be in pictures. I also know that write the room is one of their favorite choices during our "centers time."
I am heading to bed but this will be up on Teachers Pay Teachers tomorrow so check it out and let me know what you think!
