    Camping Theme Ideas
    By Tina in OK

    We're doing a school-wide camping theme, too. I've been looking for ideas all summer. One of my favorites is a snack where you make a campfire starting with a large cookie. Add M and M's to make a fire ring, pretzels as kindling and cheez puffs for logs. Then "glue" candy corn on for flames.

    Also, my kids are going to make friendship bracelets on the first day, as they would at camp. They are going to make mini back packs out of brown paper lunch sacks to keep story bits in and at the end of the theme they will have all the bits to take home and share. I also found a first aid kit that you make in a film canister and a telescope made out of a paper towel roll. You punch holes in black paper to put on the end. The holes are a constellation.

    FYI- To keep the momentum going, I am doing mini-units on: The Night Sky, Nocturnal Animals, Bears, Insects, Water, Frogs, Plants, etc. Most are units I would be doing anyway throughout the year but I'll just lump them in to the first quarter. (Our 4th quarter theme is going to be America's Favorite Pastime-Baseball.)

    I can't wait to check out Cathy Dee's links above. Gotta Go!
