We use them everyday, we talk about how to use them, how to take care of them, but rarely about where they come from or how they come to be! Once in awhile I do a fun little "How it's made" activity with my kids. I have done one about crayons many times, but I decided I wanted a little more to go with the lesson so I wrote one of my Little Learner News Articles about Crayons! I can't wait to try it with my kids! This way I can tie in some print awareness with something we are already doing!
We will read the article and then they can "report" about what they learned. They are so curious about how things are made, this is going to be so much fun! I'll update with some reports eventually!
Here's a fun video from Mr. Rogers to learn about how crayons are made too!
