Years ago I attended a literacy center workshop and the presenter offered tons and tons of great ideas for activities. I love the kind of workshops where you leave with great ideas for hands on activities that you can create and use the very next day! During the session she shared the “Cereal Box Activity”. I thought this activity was so very clever! It’s easy to make, has a self-checking feature and it can be used with many skills. In this video, I created the activity using math facts. You can create the activity for a variety of skills such as parts of speech, state capitals, and the list goes on and on. You can also differentiate the activity by limiting or increasing the number of puzzle pieces. So, take a peek at the video below and learn how to make your own cereal box puzzles!
It was a bit difficult seeing the finished product in the video so I attached this pic.
Are you scrounging for boxes in your cupboards yet?
