This is a DOUBLE FILE FOLDER Activity that contains 4 sheets of “buckets” and 3 sheets of “sticks.” In total, there are 24 buckets and 30 sticks. Half of the buckets have the word “big” written on them, and half of the buckets have the word “little.” Students place a picture stick in the bucket it applies to. This one is pretty simple!
Things That Could Be Helpful
Big and little are relative concepts. This is a beginning activity with pictures of common objects typically described as “big” or as “little.”
For example, one of the sticks has a picture of a mouse on it. Mice are typically "small" or “little.”
The 4 pages of buckets are to be attached to 2 file folders, or they can be used on posters (a large ‘big’ and ‘small’ activity…) Naturally, use this in whatever way is most convenient for you.
If you are using this as a file folder activity, cut out the sticks and laminate.
(If you don't want to use velcro or adhesive: CUT A SLIT ACROSS THE MIDDLE OF EACH BUCKET (on the ‘inside’ of the bucket, from left to right, so that the sticks will have somewhere to ‘stick into.’)
If you would prefer using velcro, (like me, who finds teeny pieces of things in unexpected places,) the sticks can be cut to use just the pictures, or, of course, you can attach a length of velcro across the middle of each bucket and sticks or pictures can be attached there.
