Long and Short

Caleb wanted to do some “studying” but I wasn’t able to prepare for homeschool since we just got back from holiday and I was still on holiday mode. Anyway, here is our instant homeschool activity! Grouping and comparing long and short straws.
I cut the straws and Caleb sorted them by length and stuck them on play doh.
Inspecting the straws.
Hard at work.
All done!
Caleb did this activity quite fast and wanted to do more! I guess he really missed our study time. So I gave him some popsicle sticks to sort.
He described the sticks as fat and thin.
When Caleb was done, he still wanted to do some more so I challenged him to use the sticks to make a cage for his dinosaur. This took some time for him to figure out and had some help from me 😉
He was happy with his creation.
