Amber of 2 Teaching Mommies came up with these fantastic jelly bean themed math/science activities and we thought we’d pass them along – they’d make a great addition to your Easter lesson plans!
The first activity invites your preschoolers to use their five senses to observe their jelly bean candies. While we’re sure your kiddos will be most excited about tasting their samples, they’re sure to have a lot of fun describing what their jelly beans look, smell, sound, and feel like too!
The next activity offers a great opportunity for your preschooler to practice color recognition, sorting, counting, and graphing skills! Not only will your kiddos enjoy using the jelly bean manipulatives to complete the activity, the finished graphing worksheet can be used to demonstrate how to analyze collected data. Students can practice using comparative terms – most, least, more than, less than, equal to, etc. – to describe the various columns on their printable.
For these fabulous worksheets, and lots of other great Easter ideas, be sure to visit 2 Teaching Mommies!
