The following was a great treasure hunt type activity that K loved doing!
I printed off the cards and I randomly placed them around the room. Then I had K take the recording worksheet with him around the room to find the numbered cards & write the name of the animal on the worksheet. He loves this kind of treasure hunt game!
I ended up changing fox to Arctic fox, bear to polar bear and whale to Orca whale just to give him a little more writing.
It was a big hit with him and even Little M loved the picture cards and played with them!
Here are some pictures if them working with this activity:
This was another great freebie I found while searching for activities called Artic Odd & Even. I skipped doing this activity with K because he is a little advanced in math but it would be great for grade 1 math/for review.
K used this penguin themed writing paper to make his Santa Letter. Unfortunately I forgot to snap some pictures of this but it turned out really cute with this paper:
I found this awesome Arctic Word Sort freebie as well and it was a hit too!
K sorted the words into columns based on it's number of syllables. Here he is clapping out syllables.
This Arctic fox mini packet was a great addition to our unit as well.
We used information from the following site to fill in these pages:
Here are some videos we ended up watching to help us learn about Arctic animals:
A polar bear stalking a seal
Orcas swimming in the water
Here are a couple of really great sensory bin ideas. I have the ice in the freezer getting ready to try this great sensory bin from http://crayonboxchronicles.com/
and this one looks like so much fun too!
Pictures of the kids with the sensory bins are still to come. I hope you have as much fun with this unit study as we have!
