Love Bug
Subject - Math, Science, Computers & Internet
Grade Level - Kindergarten
Children will use their math skills to count the correct amount of ingredients needed. Children will follow directions. Children will explore different kinds of bugs.
Read the book - Love Bugs. Talk about the difference in some of the bugs on the pages. (Some have wings, some don't, etc.) Use your internet resources to explore different kinds of bugs or use your encarta encyclopedia on your computer. Look up all kinds of bugs; familiar and unfamiliar. Chart their differences and their similarities. After your exploration make a love bug that is edible. Use on red jelly heart per child, 2 candy conversation hearts, 1 sandwich oreo top or bottom broken in half. You may want to do this. Take the jelly heart and attach the conversation hearts with a dap of frosting close to the point of the jelly heart. Turn the heart so the point is upwards. Attach the oreo halves with a dap of frosting for wings. One on each side. Buzz around with your bug and enjoy. This lesson is great for Valentine's Day or just a Science lesson.
Celebrate 1912 and the First Oreo Cookie
-Students write a story/paragraph about the best way to eat an Oreo cookie. (You may want to provide each student with their own cookie.)
--Take a survey of other classes about Oreo cookie eating habits. Consider the following questions: Do you eat out the middle first? Do you dunk your Oreo in milk? Students can graph and report out on their findings.
--Give each child an Oreo cookie and have them write a story of how they think the cookie got to their desk.
Oreo Booklets
Create an oreo shapped cookie booklet by using black construction paper for the cookie with white lined filler paper stapled inside. Have your students write a journal about their Oreo 2002 experience.
