Show and Tell: TK/K (May)

I am linking up with Stephanie of Forever in 5th Grade for Show and Tell Tuesday.

After reading a story about a boat sinking. I challenged the students to create a boat that would carry the most bears across the water with out sinking.

Since we were working on a plant unit, I really wanted to reinforce the vocabulary of the parts of the plants so we did this labeling project. I used white yarn for the roots, green tissue paper for the leaves, a green strip of foam for the stem, and a water-colored coffee filter for the flower.

The fire department came out for a visit to talk to the TK/K children about fire safety. They showed the children the equipment they use to rescue people. Each child got to sit in the truck for a peek inside.


  1. I love the boat activity! That would be a great idea for STEM Day!
