“Ten Little Balls”

We will explore a variety of balls and see which ones fit in tubes and which ones don’t.

Changes to the Environment

The dramatic play area will feature an ice cream parlor. For art play we will use eye droppers to color cotton balls and we will use magnetic wands to find magnet balls frozen in ice for sensory play.  We’ll build ramps to roll balls down in the construction area and we’ll use tongs to sort koosh balls for small motor play.  For large motor play we will use the parachute with small balls.
