Have you run out of ideas for your sensory table? Are the children bored with the sand or water? If this is the case why not turn your sensory table into an ARCHAEOLOGICAL DIG ....
This packet includes:
Archaeological Dig signs- just print and laminate
Look What I Found mats- just print and laminate
Also included is a list of materials, many of which were all ready in my classroom such as shells, buttons, rubber bugs and beads for burying in the sand. Also included is a list of materials needed to dig for items or discover items such as toothbrushes, firm paint brushes and small buckets. Any of these items can be purchased at a dollar store near you.
Included is a page that emphasizes the benefits of converting your sensory table into an archaeological dig. While the focus of this is at the sensory table, the play leads into dramatic play as well !
