In case you were wondering how to make coloring pages..

Making coloring pages is not hard, but it takes a little time. First draw a picture on a piece of white copy paper with a black Sharpie, then scan it in and save it to your computer.  Perfect it using, a free version of Photoshop, by giving the image a high contrast so that the black really stands out and the white is as bright as it can be. Then, create a PDF out of the image by loading it into a Word document and re-sizing it to fit the page, then exporting as PDF.

1. Make Paper Plate Sharks

You can make these little sharks out of paper plates. Here’s how:

Cut out a red circle for the inside of the mouth, triangles for the teeth, and half-ovals for the eyes.

Fold the bottom part and staple or tape the eyes in place and use a marker to color the dark part of the eyes.

For the back fin, cut a paper plate in half and fold the bottom edges so it can be attached with staples or tape.

Big and tall.

I tell the minute and that is all!

For Grades: Pre-K, K, 1st

For this activitiy, kids draw their own landform and label their pictures.

You will need:

  1. A Landforms book with pictures.  Big-books work well for this.
  2. Large white construction paper – 1 piece for each student
  3. Pick one: crayons/markers/colored pencils

Look at pictures of the different landforms, such as islands, mountains, plains, valleys, rivers, and lakes and talk about what each type of landform is called and show a picture of what it looks like. When you get to a page that shows all the landforms on it, keep that page open as you explain the directions for the drawing activity.

You could say, “Today we are going to draw a landform and label our pictures.  You will choose a landform that you want to draw and then draw it on your paper.  Then you will write the name of the landform on your picture.  What are some of the landforms that we learned about?”  Students raise their hands and say the name of a landform.  Ask, “How do you know it is a…(Lake, Mountain, Hill, River..Etc)?” Students raises their hands and can talk about how they know which landform it is and what unique features it has.

Pass out a piece of large white construction paper, one for each student.  Using your choice of drawing materials, have children draw one land form that they learned about and label it with the name of the landform, ie hill, mountain, lake, river, plains, island. Remind students that they also need to add their first and last name to their work :)

Have the landforms book open to the pages that show the pictures of the different landforms all on one page.  You can even write the name of each landform on the white board and draw a small picture next to it for the kids to reference as they do their work too.

Early finishers can choose a book to read on the carpet.
