We are finishing up our animal unit next week. For my Science and Social Studies Center we will be making these:
I have a super sweet little old lady who comes an volunteers in my classroom once a week. She loves to collect pine cones and has been bringing me little bags filled with pine cones for the past couple of years. I keep them and store them away. Well I now have lots and lots and lots of pine cones. More than I can store... see the problem. One of my incredible team members came up with the solution! She is beyond brilliant and mentioned the above idea to help me use all those pinecones! Although with one variation... due to peanut allergies we will be making ours with crisco instead of peanut butter... otherwise the same idea.
To go along with this center (and keep them busy for just a little bit longer) I created a quick matching worksheet for the kiddos to complete. That's your Friday Freebie, enjoy!
