God’s Little Explorers Week 9
- Theme: ”r” is for Rocks
- Bible Story: David and Goliath
- Bible Verse: “The battle is the Lord’s.” 1 Samuel 17:47
- Letter: r
- Number: 4
Here are a few activities we did:
Ha, ha…it was a little bright when I took this shot! The girls decorated “mean Goliath” faces on paper plates. Then, I measured up 9 feet and stuck the plate up there — I wanted them to get an idea of how tall Goliath was!
We took turns pretending to be Goliath (and standing up high on the island)! Using the pom poms from our Pom-Pom Stuff-It Box, we tried to “hit” Goliath in the head. I had this idea to put a loop of tape on the forehead of Goliath, but it didn’t work as well as I had hoped! If you were quite close and a good shot, it stuck. Otherwise…not so much.
We went on a rock hunt…
Then, we examined, sorted, and stacked the rocks in groups of five. We practiced counting by fives with active skip counting.
My youngest daughter actually had the Bible story at church this week, so they painted rocks!
We broke out the highlighters and searched for the letter R in the newspaper.
We also played a few outdoor number review games.
