★★Fun Stuff! ★★
♦ Colour by Knowledge
Fun colouring page allows students to show what they know in a creative and colourful way. Students colour based on the key provided and answer the reflection question provided. Answer key included.
♦ Cootie Catcher
Great for partners or small groups to get started before a lesson (maybe you have supplies to prepare, or technology to set up). Also handy for early finishers!
Fun small group game. Students pull a stick and name the symbol on the stick. If they are right, they get to keep the stick as a point, if they get a KABOOM they lose all their points.
A fun way to show off the unit’s learning! Make a great bulletin board (Hippo-Hooray for Solids and Liquids!) .
♦Solids and Liquids Sundae
Fun art connection to show solids and liquids in ‘real life’.
♦True and False Scoot
A great way to get your kids up and moving (and to check in on their learning throughout the unit!). Recording sheet, extension response sheet and answer key included.
Great for small groups or early finishers. These can be used on their own, as a pair, or in conjunction with your favourite traditional board games for extra fun! (Simply roll the cube and answer correctly to earn your turn).
