Here are some fun learning ideas you can use to launch off of the theme of this sized printable.
Use fruit for size comparisons
Showing kids the difference between big and small items doesn’t have to be a boring endeavor.
Why not incorporate some fruit into the equation to make things more fun? Try searching for different sizes of the same fruit at a nearby grocery store—for example, large oranges and little tangerines.
When you’ve found all the fruits you’ll need, organize them by size into piles and let your kids explore and play with them, comparing how big one is versus another.
After they’ve had a chance to understand which item falls into which category, encourage them to try experimenting with balancing two pieces of contrasting fruit on each other or creating mini “fruit sculptures.”
With this interactive approach to teaching size, your kids are sure to have just as much fun as they do learning!
One way to show them is to head outdoors with a magnifying glass and examine natural items such as rocks, leaves, or blades of grass.
By looking closely at these items and comparing them to each other, children can learn about the different sizes in nature.
Take an appropriate size pebble along on your exploration to act as a reference point for comparison.
Kids could make sketches or rubbings of their findings for extra fun during their hunting expedition.
Another idea is to let them fill two bags – one labeled “big” and one labeled “small” – with treasures from outside as they wander around.
With just a little guidance and supervision, nature can provide an exciting backdrop for this lesson in size differentiation.
Teach using candy
Everyone knows candy tastes great, so it can be a fun way to help children understand the difference between big and small items.
Using colorful candy such as gummy bears or jelly beans, an adult can lay out several pieces and explain which are bigger and smaller and how they relate to each other in size. Plus, kids will enjoy eating the treats after they’ve learned the lesson!
Try using other fun items such as pompoms, buttons, seeds, or pieces of paper in addition to the candy for hands-on exploration of size comparison.
Before you know it, your little ones will have mastered distinguishing between two fundamental concepts – big versus small!
