We recently created an arctic sensory bin to go along with our polar unit studies this month. We had a lot of fun creating the bin, and even more fun exploring in it.
R is five (soon to be six!) and he still adores sensory bins. I love sensory bins because they are essentially open ended play prompts with lots of learning thrown in.
You can see his delight at finding the arctic hare, that was cleverly camouflaged in the snow!
You can find the details about this arctic bin, as well as a few ideas for guided learning, over at the Safari Ltd. blog.
