We collected sea shells and made designs.
Sorting groups of objects into categories is a useful math skill. Once kids can sort they begin to create patterns. Continuing the expansion of these skills, the patterns are used in design. We used shells, but a variety of objects can be used; bottle caps, plastic lids, small cars, coins...... the possibilities are endless.
Once we completed the activity, we collected many shells and plan to use hot glue to attach them to wooden boxes, picture frames and other objects.
