Ice Cream Puzzles and Sorting Mat

We’ve been having a blast with our ice cream unit---so I’m going to be continuing it next week too. Here are a couple more printables that we will be using:

1. We’ll be talking about how we are able to feel hot and cold because we have nerves in our body. We’ll holds some ice cubes. How does it feel? What happens to our fingers if we hold it too long? Can you name some things that are cold?

Next we’ll fill a cup with warm water/tea/hot chocolate. How does the outside of the cup feel? (warm). This will be a nice opportunity to talk about being careful around hot things. Can you name some things that are hot?

After our hot/cold discussion, we’ll sort the pictures included in the download and place them in the appropriate section of the mat.

I’ve got four ice cream mini-puzzles. I’ve included a pocket page for those who might be creating a lapbook or notebook. You can also create a mini-puzzle book with a file folder (see my mini-lapbook instructions on Homeschool Share. Scroll to the middle of the page under Jungle Puzzles.)

All these ice cream ideas will be perfect to do again in July to celebrate National Ice Cream Month (because we need another reason to have to eat ice cream---lol)

We need this one! My three year old has been getting hot and cold mixed up. He tells us, "I need to go inside and warm up." It's 95 degrees+ here! lol
