Connect Easter activities to geometry. You're children will never forget the concept of an oval with this fun, educational video!
Some teaching ideas:
1. Discuss flat and solid shapes. A drawing of an egg is a flat oval--but a real egg is solid. What other flat and solid shapes do we know?
2. The video uses audio and visual learning modalities. Add the kinesthetic modality by making ovals in the air with fingers, showing small ovals with hands, or by asking children to make ovals with their bodies, e.g., by touching their toes or combining with a partner. What's the smallest oval they can make? What's the biggest oval they can make?
3. Tell children to focus on words for a reading activity. Pause the video in various places to discuss phonics, sight words, comprehension--or to practice reading a section several times quickly to promote fluency.
4. Ask students what shapes they see inside the ovals.
5. Ask students to draw ovals. What shapes will they draw inside their ovals?
