The theme for this week is animal habitats... Do u have any lesson ideas, connected to this theme, that i could do with my 3 and 4 year olds?
Hopefully you will find some ideas here:
Because they are only 3-4 years old, you can't expect much. You might hand out pictures of some animals (either individually or in pairs/groups) for each one to SOUND like that animal, LOOK like, as much as possible!
What does Being Healthy really mean? Eating a variety of nutritious food gives you the stuff you need to keep your body going, including calories that your body uses for energy.
A healthy person burns the energy from those calories every day by being physically active.
Bananas and other fruits packed with potassium can help your muscles work their best so you can "monkey" around for hours.
Bike riding is a great way to strengthen your legs, heart and your lungs. Just watch out for squirrel crossings and don’t forget to wear a helmet! Tomatoes and other healthy foods, together with exercise, can help keep you healthy and powerful so you can blow up balloons faster for a party!
Swimming is more than a great way to cool off when it's hot, it's also a fun activity that helps you work out your whole body! You might want to check for sharks before taking the plunge.
Blueberries, strawberries and other colorful fruits can help you stay healthy and strong and are also good for turning your tongue all the colors of the rainbow!
Low-fat cheese on whole wheat bread can help make your body strong and might even make you burp louder!
Jumping rope is a great way to strengthen your legs, heart, lungs and your arms! Just don’t use your grandmother’s clothes line as a rope, she won’t be very happy.
Melons like mango and watermelon and other fruits filled with Vitamin A can help you see better which can help you spit watermelon seeds right on target!
Running is a great bone-strengthening activity, but it can be hard on the joints, especially the knees. Make sure you stretch before and after your run and warm up by walking and then jogging slowly. Race your friends to see who has the strongest legs!
Oranges, lemons and other fruits packed with Vitamin C can help you heal faster but don't squeeze them on a cut-ouch! That's NOT fun!
Frisbee is a great way to spend time outside on a beautiful day. Just grab your Frisbee and a few friends and you've got yourself a game! Make sure to have a great time, but watch out for grass stains!
Low-fat milk and other milk products that are crammed with calcium can help make your bones strong so you can skateboard or bike better.
Chicken, fish and other lean meats are filled with protein and can help keep your muscles strong so you can win that next race.
Rollerblading is a great way to strengthen your heart and lungs, legs, butt and your lower back. Learn to wiz around on your skates really fast and learn some cool tricks, but be sure to lace up tight and make sure to wear a helmet!
Carrots and other vegetables jam-packed with vitamin A can help your eyes stay healthy so you can find your friends faster playing hide-and-seek!
Walking isn't just a way to get from here to there, it’s also a great physical activity! If you walk 6,000 steps each day, you will walk a mile which is 5,280 fruit by the foot rolls!
Leafy green vegetables full of vitamins help keep you energized so you can run you’re fastest during a soccer game!
A balanced breakfast can help kick-start your day and healthy eating can help you concentrate better in school, so you can become faster, stronger and smarter.
Hiking is a great way to get out in nature and improve strength in your legs, tummy, shoulders and neck. You never know what you might find during your exploration, animals, strange plants, or even buried treasure!
Beans and other foods high in iron can help your body stay energized and you know what they say about beans!
Skateboarding is a great way to strengthen your legs, knees and ankles. Don’t forget to check your board before you ride and make sure to wear a helmet! Over time you can learn cool tricks to impress your family and friends!
Spinach and other foods high in Vitamin A can keep your skin healthy and you know who else gets their power from spinach, don’t you?
