We are really hoping for spring around here! The unseasonably warm day was a welcome change and melted away our 22 inches of snow. And in that spirit we decided it was time to think about Saint Patrick's Day! Today we made a cloud with rainbow rays. All of our rays were different in lengths and we were challenged to put them in order from longest to shortest, and shortest to longest.
The activity was great for color recognition, understanding the concept of length, ordering objects by length, and comparing lengths. Also it was a great fine motor activity!
