1-2-3 Do Some Carrot Activities With Me!
Since spring has supposedly sprung, although you wouldn't know it by the cold and snowy weather we're having here in Michigan, I thought I'd whip together a few carrot-themed activities.
My Y5's loved carrots and dip as a snack. I'd often put some sort of "craftivity" involving carrot counting, or graphing as an extension, into our morning lessons, and then finish up with the carrot snack as a reward for a job well done.
This packet includes a carrot fold open card that's nice to give as a spring note to parents, or use it to have students record their writing prompt inside.
Snipping the carrot topper is a wonderful fine motor skill as well. The template is symmetric so you can review that concept too.
The "Spring Spiral" is also a great cutting skill. I've included a left-handed spiral too, so that your "lefties" will have an easier time.
These spiraling carrots look great hanging from the ceiling.
I've included several graphing extensions + upper and lowercase bunny-carrot cards that you can use as a spring border, or to use for Memory Match games or to play "I Have; Who Has?"
