This is one of my best sellers- and is SO Much FUN to use in the classroom!
I found these cereal rainbows on Pinterst and had to make a unit to go with it. The cereal rainbows are made from two large marshmallows, colored cereal and a bamboo skewer.
I used this unit with my kids during an observation with my Principal. She LOVED the lessons.
I first gave the students a bag of Fruit Loops (I gave each of them a cup of Fruit Loops). I also gave them the skewer and the marshmallows. Using the "recipe" in the packet, I instructed the kids to build their rainbow with specific numbers. By using this "recipe", all of your results will match up with the pages when you are working further in the unit.
The unit includes the following:
~ Notes to the teacher about prep and running this lesson
~A estimation portion, counting part and sorting part on one page
~A recording page about the cereal rainbow that the kids made
and addition problems to go with the numbers of cereal in
~ Graph headings for Favorite Rainbow Colors graph- perfect for a
~A graph (for kids) of colors used in the rainbow and questions to
go with it.
~ A Narrative writing page about what the kids did to build a cereal
~ 2 Opinion writing pages about making the rainbows and if they
liked the taste of the cereal
~ 2 Expository writing pages about the rainbows
~ A science page working with the 5 senses
The unit is 35 pages long. Each page has a color page and a black and white page.
