Students were introduced to our sense of sight yesterday. They learned several fun facts about our eyes and enjoyed a short Bill Nye the Science Guy clip on our sense of sight. Today, I planned two activities that challenged students to use their sense of sight. Here is a description of the first activity:
Go! Students went back to their desks to record as many items as possible. They could use pictures or words to show which items they remembered.
Here is what was on the tray:
We came back together to see which items the students remembered….and as a group, they identified all but the blue rubber band! Go, kindergartners!
Next, I took the students outside for a sight scavenger hunt. They looked for items that were big, small, shiny, and
While outside, students drew pictures of the items they saw.
Once we were back inside, students practiced sounding out the words to match their pictures. I encouraged students to use their best guess spelling. What a great job they did!
To carry on the theme of the sense of sight, students will each make a pair of binoculars tomorrow during Friday Fun!
