Preschool Science activity for the theme Camping?
Do you have any ideas? Thanks!
I actually stole (borrowed) this idea from a children’s museum so now you can have it. I set up a tent in the class room with props like cooking supplies, clothes line, fishing poles, real logs for the pretend fire pit, back packs etc. This dramatic play area will definitely be a big hit. You could introduce some water into this also. Science = cause/affect (cooking, fishing,) hot/cold (fire, drying clothes, tent to stay warm) etc. Etc.
Are there and teachers out there who have ideas for items to use in a prop box for the following Themes?
Themes (Birthdays, Beach, Picnic, Camping, Gardening and Bugs) Need ideas for dramatic play, music, storytime, math, music, finger play and poems. I am trying to design lesson plans. I do a home daycare and my time is really limited. Also If I could recruit a few good people who would like to correspond via email with me on a regular basis about lesson plans I would be more than willing to pay for your services. I can be emailed at email@example.com . Oh yeah this is for children preschool age
This is a great website for little ones (and ideas for us “big ones”) … Www.enchantedlearning.com
I go here for all sorts of ideas for holidays and rainy day projects.
I send my children to school for social purposes only, then teach them myself when they get home. Sorry, but I’ve lost all faith in the school system of Louisiana and feel that they learn nothing at school.
I’d love to help out if I can, and share ideas , but I don’t expect payment in return. Seeing children use their imaginations, laughing and learning, is payment enough

How do I make a giant Igloo for my preschool class?
I am a preschool teacher and we are doing themes for our summer camp and one of them is an artic theme. I want to make a giant igloo in the corner of the room that the kids can walk in and out of. Any suggestions on how I can do that? I would like to some how make it out of butcher paper. Any ideas would be great. Or any ideas I can add to help decorate the room for our artic theme would be awesome. Thanks.
If you don’t have or don’t want to collect that many milk jugs, how about a dome shaped tent? You can find them at fairly low prices and, if you don’t plan to use it for real camping outdoors, you can get a cheap one. Draw block shapes on the butcher paper and then use it to cover the tent.
Please be sure children learn that people in the Arctic do NOT live in igloos. Read up on it and give them authentic information about life in the Arctic.
I didn’t read the other answers all that closely, but here are some ideas:
Put up pictures of Arctic animals. Use them later to go on an Arctic animal “safari”.
Freeze water in various shaped containers. You can put in food colouring to give them colour. Float them in your water table for “icebergs”.
Have kids make “Ivory Snow” pictures and put them up around the room.
Teach kids to cut out snowflakes. Hand those up around the room.
I love having kids make decorations for the room rather than teachers doing it.
Easy Summer Day Camp Ideas?
Well, my sisters and I are always bored in the summer. I am the oldest of 5 girls and they like it when I organize stuff for them. This year I decided to do a little day camp type thing for them, but I need ideas of what we should do. I already have-
Water Games, Slip ‘n’ Slide, Snacks, Movies, Colouring, outdoor games, scavenger hunt and playground.
