Watermelon Writing and Math

I am excited to post our Watermelon Craftivity!  The kids were so excited to explore a watermelon using our 5 senses.  I think a great way to teach the 5 senses in kindergarten is using food because they can taste, smell, feel, hear, and see it!  We used the watermelon project that I made for the students to use as a graphic organizer when using their 5 senses.


I started our watermelon lesson by reading Down By the Bay, which is also a fun song to sing with the kids.  After I read the book, I let them make up their own rhymes to make a cute chant.

Then it was time to use our 5 senses and describe the watermelon.  I gave each child a slice and the worksheet that I made.  We wrote down adjectives to describe it!

{for some reason, I thought it was cute when they tried to smell the watermelon…}

After our watermelon tasting, we made the watermelon craftivity!

The students wrote sentences on the bottom layer of the watermelon.

{Watermelons have seeds.  Watermelons grow from the ground.}

{In my class we did the five senses of the watermelon.  I see a watermelon.}
Our second layer was used to make a math addition sentence by counting watermelon seeds.

The final step was to glue the fun cover on!  Each layer is glued at the top, so they can flip up and you can see the math and language arts layers.

Sorry I am not more detailed in my post today…I am sick in bed.  But a picture is worth a thousand words, right?  (I tried to add a lot of pictures in this post….)  🙂
