Things That Fly
Debbie Haren, Preschool Teacher
Students will learn what things fly and what animals fly, and realize what things need to fly (such as wind or wings).
- a piece of chart paper
- some markers
- some pictures from magazines
- glue or tape
- Discuss with children about things that fly. You could also read a book about the wind or airplanes to the children.
- After you have discussed things that fly ask the children how they think these things stay up in the sky.
- Then tell the children you are going to make a chart with two sides. One side is for animals that fly and the other is for objects that fly.
- Let each child think of one thing to add to the chart and have that child tell you if it goes in the animal side or the object side. Write the child's name beside the item they told you.
- When you are all done you can laminate it and hang it up with some cut out pictures of the items the kids named.
