Sorting on Our Johnny Appleseed Hats
So last week we spent quite a bit of time learning about Johnny Appleseed and I knew my kids were dying to make their own Johnny Appleseed pan hats to wear home. However, instead of just making the hats, I turned it into a sorting activity. I gave each child a handful of colored shapes and they had to decide how to sort them. As you can see in this picture, this little boy sorted by color. This way they weren't just doing a fun activity but were also re-enforcing their sorting skills.
