   Mini Sun Unit   

 

This is a sample of activities you could do for

a Sun Unit Study with young children.

 

You may change the activities as you please.  It is just

to show you what could be done with a group of preschoolers.

 

Circle Time

Devotion, the children request for us to pray

for their parents, loved ones or other.

Children say their pledges.

 

Our colors for the day are yellow and orange.

Let the children bring items from home representing

those colors.  Or let them wear the colors of the day.

 

Arts & Crafts 

 Make a sun head band.

Use construction paper.  Cut large circle for each child.

Cut several strips of construction paper for the rays.

Use stickers for eyes or free draw.

 

Let the children decorate their sun (circle).

Let them decorate the rays, if they desire so.

Let them tape the rays around the face of the sun.

 

Cut large strips for the head band.

Attach the sun to the head band.

We hid the baby and gave clues of the whereabouts of the baby.

Children learned to follow directions and to be discriminate

about the information they were given.

start to move about.  According to colors

given, they must act upon them.

that is at the level of the children in your group.

 

Say: "All those with yellow on, go on the yellow dot..."

Change the game around and make up different

challenges for this fun game.

 

 

Weather permitting, have some outdoor fun with the children.
