Introduce new vegetables to kids through this fun fruits and vegetables for kids science lesson sorting thanksgiving activity.
Children perceive what is happening in the world before they are born. As they get more stimulation, they will develop their natural skills even more.
In their early years, children start doing mathematical processes without being aware of them. When they interact with others and their environment, they can distinguish between shapes, sizes, colors and classify information.
When children play and group similar objects, they are giving birth to the number. That will allow them to understand that each group has a number and will ease the counting process. They will be aware of numbers and quantities ratio; they will not just repeat.
We can help them at home to sort and group different objects and develop their mathematical thinking through the game. A game based on daily tasks.
The grouping can be done using different methods. No matter which motivates us to do this thanksgiving activity with our children, let’s remember there is always something to learn.
