Life At Sea Week IV: Vacation Edition


This post may contain affiliate links.

This will be the last post inspired by our vacation last week.  Though we were relaxing, we did take some time (less than I would have liked) to fit in some learning.  I was able to create some fun new printables before we left.

If you like what you see, follow me on blogger and/or Pinterest, or like me on facebook and/or twitter!

Language:
Boat Memory Game
Last year we used these cards as nomenclature cards and paired them up with boat figures. This year I printed two copies out and we're using them as a memory game.  The kiddos loved the cards!

Vacation Phonograms
This is a brand new printable, created specifically for our vacation, but would work with any nautical unit.  The kiddos match up the pictures with the phonograms.

Math:
Boating Addition
With this new printable to the Life At Sea collection, the kiddos will use boat figures as counters and glass beads as markers to solve and answer the addition problems.  I just love how this activity turned out!

Vacation Time Activity
This is also a new printable to the Life At Sea collection!  The kiddos will match clocks with their time.  The clock cards show pictures of what one might do while on vacation or camping.

Boating Supplies Money Activity
Here's another new printable to the Life At Sea collection!  The kiddos will match up coin cards to money amount cards.  All of the cards show supplies one might need while boating.

Science:
Marshmallow Constellation Activity
This is an activity we've done before, but the kiddos love it.  I attribute their great knowledge of constellations to it.  Using toothpicks and marshmallows, the kiddos create the constellations on the cards.

Moon Cycle Activity
This activity is a favorite in our house.  Bulldozer especially loves it.  You create the moons in the cycle using Oreos.  It's so much fun!

Culture:
Land & Water Forms
I thought it would be very appropriate to review land and water forms on our vacation in the 1000 Islands.  I love these felt cut outs I created a while back.  They're so easy to use.

Source: I found the free printable cards at Montessori Mom.

Water Creatures
We've used this activity in the past, but I thought it would be fun to bring it out again.  Dinomite LOVES it.  Other kiddos on vacation tended to enjoy it as well.  The kiddos separate the creature cards into the correct categories.

Practical Life:
Boat Lacing Card
It was a little difficult bringing along practical life activities, but I did manage to bring this, since it was easily packable.  The kiddos are getting better and better at lacing cards!  Hooray!

  1. Your units are always so inspirational :) I love visiting to see all of the new activities you've been working on! Your kids are so lucky!

    Although, the one drawback is that my son is still too young for these particular works, and I get so excited to prepare them for him straight away :)
