Learning About Opposites


One of our toddler classes has been learning about opposites. Here are some of the crafts/activities they've done while exploring opposites:
      ~Hard and soft with cotton balls and buttons



     ~Up and Down with dot markers on arrows




     ~Dark and Light with fingertips in white and black paint






We do quite a lot of sink and float experimentation in Pre-K. It's always fun to hear what the kids think will float and what will sink. Afterwards, I often set up a little station in our science center for independent exploration. I provide writing materials so students can record their observations.





Sensory bottles are also a great way to facilitate independent exploration for sink/float observations. 





There are some great books about opposites! Here are a few of my favorites:
