To celebrate International Dot Day, Mrs. Crumley’s first graders searched for dots in our courtyard. The students were divided into groups of three and given these instructions:
- Each person takes a photo of something shaped like a dot.
- Take a selfie or get someone else to take a photo of the members of the group.
After a couple of photography pointers to avoid blurry images, we headed out to our courtyard.
Within just a few seconds, we heard excited voices getting their team’s attention by calling out such things as:
“Look! A snail! That’s shaped like a dot.” “Look at that pipe. It has round holes that look like dots!”
After all photos were collected, we returned to the lab where the pictures were added to Pic Collage for Kids (love this version because there are no ads). Collages were printed for everyone (you know how important it is for children to take something home!).
Here’s a short video of the activity.
