Product Description
Classroom Camping: Welcome to Camp Learn Some More! Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Social Studies lessons are all incorporated in this engaging and educationally rich resource. Perhaps best of's FUN! This is my absolute favorite resource! I cannot wait for camping week each year and either can my students. They have heard about from their siblings and former classmates and they always want to know..."Mrs. Pettersen, are we going to do classroom camping this year?"
Although this resource can be used any time of year, this is an especially great resource for the end of the school year. It's great for when you need to keep students engaged with academically enriching activities and yet still have fun in the classroom! When your principal walks by, your students are engaged and the classroom is abuzz with the students collaborating and oh....the sounds of crickets from the SMARTboard campfire.
This resource works great as camping stations/centers with academic themes. You can set up a few tents and/or cover some tables with blankets for make-shift campsites and you have at least 4 different camp site themes that cover the curriculum right at your fingertips.

-4 colored posters to identify each "campsite" (Math, Reading, Science, Social Studies).
