Here are a couple more lessons that were on our shelves for our Transportation Unit Study.
This is just a diagram I made and labeled the parts of the car. I have a labeled page and a blank page. He enjoyed learning about the parts of the car he has never heard of before.
Tonging and sorting transportation-themed erasers from the dollar store. When we were done, we discussed which bowl had the most and the least.
Me: Judah, do you know which bowl has the most erasers?
Judah: The yellow ones.
Me: Great job. How did you know that?
Judah: Cause it has five. And the other one only has three. You have to COUNT them, mom.
Folding clothes – we have a shirt, pants and socks on this tray. Not gonna lie, this wasn’t his favorite. I don’t see too much folding in his future.
Tweezing and sorting small beads. Found these adorable bowls at Michaels and they kinda make me smile. I’m weird, I can’t help it. He really liked how the color of the beads matched the color of the bowls. Definitely my kid.
This was a no brainer for Judah. I was given the ‘duh, mom’ face. But he really loved building the magnets into different shaped towers and dangling them – experimenting with which magnets were strong enough to hold all the other ones.
This little guy is really enjoying school, too!
Our Transportation Grammar Farm – biggest hit of the week! Spent HOURS playing with this! So glad our Ikea rug is finally getting some use!
Then the “giant monster baby” came and knocked everything down!
Sandpaper letters and our sand (salt) tray. I saw this on pinterest, but can’t for the life of me find it again – so if the pie dish sand tray was your idea – please let me know! I’d love to give you credit for your brilliant idea!
We ended our transportation unit with the perfect Field Trip – we went on a ride on Thomas the Train! What a fun day that was!
