Teach kindergarteners the three basic needs of people—shelter, clothing, and food & water—with this creative interactive activity simply using an envelope, a person cut-out, some dried beans, and colorful fabric.
This activity is a great way to present or finalize a study on basic needs, providing kindergarteners with a hands-on experience and a take-home learning tool. Activity is approximately 20 minutes. Add a story and a graphing project to extend the lesson.
