A bucket of water, a pail of dirt …..
Mix all together for …..
Mud squishing between our toes …..
Who has not done this before? Or at least found a puddle and walked in it to make mud?? Great childhood memories come from simple things like dirt and water!
Children are drawn to mud puddles! The Mud Unit of Study from Early Learning Success encourages children to explore mud in many different ways. When doing this Unit of Study, prepare parents for some dirty children. In fact, request that the children wear their oldest clothes, and that they have at least one change of clothing per day!
Use mud for learning through these hands-on activities:
• Sequencing with the story Mud Walk by Joy Cowley
• Practicing counting by cutting a mud pie into pieces, (also fractions)
• Building with adobe mud bricks
• Creating a ‘Mud Kitchen’ for dramatic play
Remember, the dirtier children are at the end of the day, the more their learning was enhanced! Try the Mud Unit of Study for $6.00 through April.
