Lots of Lids


The Concept: Students will sort, count, graph, and make comparisons with a variety of lids. My nickname for this lesson is “Making Something out of Nothing at All.” Accumulating huge lid collections is easy. Simply put a box somewhere in the school, and ask families to recycle by bringing in used lids. You will find that the children tend to play with these items more than commercial toys.
