Humpty Dumpty & Egg Unit
Spring is the perfect time for an egg unit ! Eggs are everywhere! I didn't want to make eggs a tie in for Easter though so we are doing a unit on Humpty Dumpty instead.
We started with me introducing the poem and then the boys followed along.
Then I asked them to work together and make a wall that Humpty could sit on.
Imagine their delight as we sat down a REAL egg, complete with a face, and acted out the poem. SPLAT ! Poor Humpty !
|It's easy to make stories come to life !|
A closer examination was necessary....
|Hands on learning as often as you can !|
Then we sat together and tried to solve the mystery.... What happened ? How did Humpty Dumpty manage to fall off that wall ?
|the things they come up with|
While the younger children focused on the letter "H"....
My grade 1 child answered and illustrated what they did with the broken pieces....
We identified rhyming words ...
|4 year old underlined and the 6 year old also rewrote the words|
And then we made a craft. Sponge painting a brick wall for Humpty Dumpty !
|Worked well for a multi aged group|
|He took it so seriously !|
I let my two year old play with the cleaned up egg shells.
|It bounced !|
|Puppets to act out the story using your arm as the wall|
|The shell disappears|
|The King wasn't the only one with an army|
|Science for little ones !|
