Preschool Lesson Plan Printable Activities and Worksheets
Let's have fun with the letter W. One wonderful way to introduce a new letter or reinforce it, is with tasty and yummy foods. Ideally having the particular food to present, taste and even make a simple recipe, adds to the excitement and a sensory learning experience.
Activity: Watermelon - Bottled Water Nature's Way (requires Adobe Flash) A fascinating presentation for children about this water rich fruit.
Materials for coloring and crafting:
- white paper or cardstock
- coloring tools
- glue stick
Print this watermelon coloring page. Cut watermelon slices. Reserve a few watermelon pieces and allow child to use a few pieces to color the pulp areas in the coloring page with the juice (alternative: use watermelon diluted gelatin or similar product). Yes, it is messy, but very effective, the child is using many of the senses (sight, smell, touch and hearing during this process). Use green markers and other colors to finish the picture. Save some seeds to glue in the pulp area of the picture.
