What do you get when you combine descriptive egg shells with a hammer? THE MOST FUN LEARNING ACTIVITY EVERRRRR!!!!
WHAT YOU NEED:
egg shells (washed and dried)
towel/piece of cloth
HOW TO MAKE:
Use Sharpie markers to write words or draw pictures about Canada on each egg shell.
Place a piece of cloth (we used a piece of felt!) on a tray and place the egg shells on top. The cloth helps to keep the shells in place, but also minimizes the smashing sounds
Discuss what is represented on each egg shell.
Quiz time! Ask questions about what you’ve discussed and have your child smash the egg shell that has the correct answer!
Older kids can write a summary of what they learned during the activity
Little ones can share what they learned with a sibling/friend!
Which of these things did you already know? Which of these things represent new information?
What other countries would you like to learn about in this way?
What other facts could have been added to the egg shells?
THINGS TO CELEBRATE & ENCOURAGE:
safe use of hammer
listening to discussion
hand eye coordination
I’m telling you – if smashing is involved, learning HAPPENS. There’s just something very engaging about intentionally breaking things
