This time our shape for the month was “HEXAGON”. I always try and do an activity relating to the concepts/ shapes etc. so that it has a better retention in my students’ minds. So for the hexagon shape, I decided to do a hexagon bee hive craft.
First of all, I cut out Hexagon shapes from a yellow chart paper – one for each kid.
Then I gave it to my kids. All of them had to count the total number of sides of the hexagon.
This they did very religiously.
Next, I took a finger print of each students, with yellow colored paint on a white chart paper, and let it dry. Then I added further details with a black sharpie to make it look like a honey bee. Once finished, I cut out all the “Honey bees”.
Lastly, I arranged all the hexagon shapes on a white chart and stuck them on it to make it look like a bee hive. Then I cut out the outline of the bee hive from the white chart. I stuck the bee hive on the top of our bulletin board. This was followed by the little honey bees, who were flying towards the hive.
And we revised our shape daily, everyday of the month.
