Melanie at Whimsical Ways shared this awesome winter graphing activity that we think would be a hit with your preschoolers.

Supplies You'll Need

  • Large poster board
  • Plastic animal figurines

Divide your poster board into two sections - "Animals that like snow" and "Animals that do not like snow". As a group, sort the animal figurines into the proper category discussing what you know about each animal's natural habitat, special characteristics, etc. that make them a good candidate for that particular group.

Other considerations...

This could be a fun magnet activity. Instead of using poster board, label a large cookie sheet or inexpensive oil pan and print photos of the animals {attaching a magnet strip to the back of each} for your students to sort.

We think this is a fun science and math activity for your kiddos to tackle this winter. Be sure to visit Whimsical Ways for this and other great early childhood activities!
