Play a game of consequences to practise writing skills with your students. Consequences is one of my favourite classroom writing activities. Group writing, reason to read and usually hilarious.
Nets, boots, gloves, pail, plastic shovel or scoop, hay, pictures of animals and zoo keepers also stuffed animals. Set out the materials. Children can pretend to be a zoo keepers working at the zoo and feeding the animals.
Books of different animals that are found in the zoo. Teachers ask children to write their own stories of what the animals they will see at the zoo young children can just draw animals and then have them illustrate it.
After they have done that have them share their books with the class, if they would like. The students will benefit from hearing the other stories as well as writing their own.
The teacher should make the covers with 2 pieces of cardboard and glue the two edges together. Then have the children create a illustration on the cover. Feathered Friends While studying farm animals Shauna R. Gold and orange yarn, and brown rice. Teachers pre cut a duck for all of your children.
Then give each child a handful of gold and orange yarn cut into small pieces. The gold yarn is used for the beak of the duck.
Then you use the orange yarn for the feet. The children then spread glue over the rest of the ducks body, pouring rice over the glue. Pour enough to make a thick coat. Dump the excess rice and BAM you have a feathered friend.
I did the activity with my 3 and 4 year olds and they loved using the rice to make a animal. A lot of them only thought of rice as a delicious meal item. Young children can cut their own "Z" from yellow construction paper or it can be precut by adult.
Brown construction paper pieces are ripped by children and glued onto the "Z". Next, eyes and mouth are drawn with the marker. Finally, clothes pins are clipped on bottom of the "Z" to make the legs of the giraffe.
The children love making this craft.
Animal Face Sandwiches Children have fun creating animals for snack during this cool cooking activity by Melody R. Try these sandwiches during circus and zoo themes or for national pet week. Bread, peanut butter, raisins, pickles, carrots, plastic knives and a carrot grater.
Let children make animal face sandwiches for sanctum. Give them each a slice of whole wheat toast and have them spread on peanut butter.
Let them place raisins in the centers of their toast slices to make eyes and noses. Then give them thin slivers of pickles to add for whiskers and grated carrots to sprinkle on for fur.
Paper plates, orange, yellow, brown and red yarn, yellow cotton balls, markers, crayons, glue and construction paper. Use the paper plate as the lions head. Glue yellow cotton balls or colored yarn all around the paper plate for the lion's mane.
Have the children draw and color the face of the lion. Cut out ears from construction paper and glue them to the top of the paper plate. If desired, cut out the eyes of the lion, to make a mask! It can be used during a circus or zoo theme.
All children sit in a circle on the floor. One child gets up and imitates an elephant with one arm dangling like a trunk, and the other arm dangling behind like a tail. The child then skips around the circle while everyone sings: The friend stands behind the first child in the same position holding hands, as if they are elephants in the circus.
Everyone then continue to sing as the two elephants skip around them:The Purdue University Online Writing Lab serves writers from around the world and the Purdue University Writing Lab helps writers on Purdue's campus.
