Tower of Babel, Just for Fun
MATERIALS:Activity page for each child [PDF] Click here
Red Pencil or Crayon
Before class, print one copy of the activity picture for each child. Each child will also need a red pencil or crayon.
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
Distribute an activity page to each child. Tell the children that the builder on the page needs their help. Someone mixed all of the shapes together on the bottom of the page. He needs help finding the seven rectangles so he can continue to build his tower.
Ask the children to color each of the rectangles they find red. This will help the builder find the shapes he needs. When the kids are done coloring the rectangles have them count the rectangles, each child should have seven rectangles colored red on his or her page.
