WonderWorks: Tweezer & Tongs (outreach edition)
Today's Project: Tweezers & Tongs (outreach edition)
salad tongs (medium and large size)
pom-poms (teeny and average size)
How to catch an elephant / Schwartz, Amy
This is such a strange little storyline, but it's got some great interactive elements if you play them up. The kids loved this one!
Chopsticks / Rosenthal, Amy Krouse
See the original, in-house version of this lesson here.
What Kids Do: use the tweezers to pick up teeny pom-poms and put them into cups, egg cartons, etc.
The teachers were quite excited about all of the fine motor practice and hand-eye coordination that this lesson encouraged. The kids just had fun figuring out how to use these tools. (Although, truthfully -- they were done playing with this one earlier than they had been with the geoboards.)
