Friday is here and so is your fifth installment for preschool activity bags.
1. Print the graph.
2. Cut it out so it will easily slide into your Ziploc bag.
3. Cut paint chips down to size so they will fit on the graph.
4. Laminate the chips, if desired.
5. Add small magnet pieces to the backs of the chips, if you like. I do this so that my son can place the graph on a cookie sheet and then add the chips. They "stick" which makes it a little bit more fun (and less frustrating) for my son.
6. Put everything (25 paint chips and graph) in your Ziploc bag and attach label with packing tape.
This activity introduces simple graphing skills as well as visual discrimination skills. It also helps your little student understand that one color comes in a variety of shades. An older student could even put the chips in order based on gradation (from the lightest shade to the darkest shade).
