Ok, so here’s the problem! Megan and I do the things for a special day, such as Columbus Day, take pictures, and get ready to do a blog post. The problem is, by the time we get the post up, the day has come and gone! And then you have to remember it for next year! So, here are the pictures from LAST YEAR on Columbus Day! We had a blast! Here are the float and sink activities that we did. The children made predictions, checked their predictions, and made their bottle books!
This is our earth! The kiddos painted “land” on the sphere and on the back made a circle map of things that are spheres.
This was the highlight…to say the least! The kiddos had so much fun making the coke floats! This was a fun way to teach predictions, doing the experiment, and graphing the results of the experiment!
Here is where we made an all about Christopher Columbus Book! They loved the toilet paper roll telescopes! The chart is one that I found on someone else’s blog that they used while making the book.
Here is where we made a large Santa Maria and then each child made their own. We were working on labeling.
We talked about characteristics of Christopher Columbus and then the children drew and wrote about their connections. Then we shared them with our buddies.
All of these activities are from the Hooray for Columbus Day Unit. What are you planning for Columbus Day? Do you have a blog post about Columbus Day? If so, leave a comment with a link to your post! Would love to see them as we will actually have time to do it now BEFORE Columbus Day!
