Hands-on Outdoor ABCs
Grade Level(s): Preschool
By: E A CYR, parent

Gather outdoor items on a walk, discuss, and make your own book!

Objectives:

Children learn about ABCs, different things about the outdoors, colors, textures, shapes.

Materials:

  • construction paper
  • glue
  • shoe box
  • string ( for binding book)

Plan:

  1. In the fall, go outside with the children and ask them (with your help) to gather different things that start with different letters.
  2. Place these items in a shoe box then return inside.
  3. Talk about what you found: colors, textures, letters, etc.
  4. Then, glue them onto construction paper and make a book for looking at later.

Hints: If things are brittle, do not use them. If leaves are in color, the best way to preserve them is by ironing them with wax paper.

Comments:

Children love hands-on activities they feel more involved, more like they did it, being outside helps them develop their imagination.

Editor's Note: The Ziploc Bag Book would be very appropriate for this activity so you don't have to worry about things staying glued on.
