Making resolutions…

Counting down the ‘ball’ drop…

Seeing fireworks…

These are common things many of us do to ring in the New Year.

 

Young children are just starting to understand how our world measures ‘time’. Part of that understanding includes knowledge of days, weeks and years. This Unit explores the start of a ‘new year’. Through hands-on activities, children will:

  • Begin to understand how a calendar helps track a year
  • Experience some traditional activities around the world for ‘ringing in’ the New Year
  • Practice counting skills with a bubble wrap blast countdown
