Have you ever witnessed a child putting things "in order"? Like lining up all the cars, placing each animal side by side or even putting same size blocks together? They love order! When we were learning about spring weather rainbows came up. Of course there is an order to their color, so we got right down to it!
Here we made a map legend of the rainbow colors. I previously cut out circles in each of the colors and had them glue them down on a piece of paper.
Then they took their map legend to another area to make a rainbow necklace. They put the beads in color order and then made a pattern by repeating the order! Did I mention I did this with my sweet little 3 year olds? They did such a fantastic job. :)
