Block Play - Tall and Short

Today we used building blocks to demonstrate 'tallest to shortest'. I jumbled the blocks before we began and Bubble had fun sorting them into the right order. We practiced with different kinds of blocks and then moved on to drawing pictures for some expressive learning.


* blocks of varying heights

Other ideas: you could use just about anything to teach this, try cutting food into different heights at mealtime, or using sticks or piles of stones. Build tall and short sandcastles in the sandpit, or use dolls or people to show differences in height.
