|Making the playdough yesterday - fun and messy.|
After the playdough was made, we spend some time practicing making and naming the continents. We had to make sure we would be ready to be the teachers when our K Buddies came to visit.
This afternoon, the children were paired up (or in some cases worked in 3s or alone, depending), and tried to represent to seven continents as accurately as possible. Once the continents were formed and placed on blue "ocean" paper, children cut out pieces of paper with each continent name and put the labels where they belonged. Students took turns closing their eyes while their partner mixed up the labels - then were challenged to place the slips of paper where they belonged.
