Every month included with out Mother Goose Time curriculum are 2 different manipulatives, I have done a post showing just some of the great manipulatives we have received over time. This month we received geoboard, which the boys loved. We did “finger jumping” during our fitness week that the boys spent hours doing. I thought it would be fun to come up with a bunch of different activities for them to do using the geoboard since they enjoyed them so much, I love finding ways to extend the learning of activities for the kids. Plus it’s great fine motor strengthening playing with geoboard!!
10 Different Geoboard Activities For Kids
- Making different shapes on the geoboards and talk about how they are alike and different.
- Learning perimeter of a shape.
- Making letters or numbers on the geoboards.
- Make lines of different lengths discuss which ones are shorter/shortest, long/longer/longest etc.
- Learn horizontal and parallel, interesting, perpendicular.
- Learn about different types of triangles (equilateral, isosceles, scalene, and right).
- Make patterns.
- Make as many of the same shape as you can fit on the geoboard.
- Make a shape and then make a reflection of the shape.
- Make the biggest and smallest of a certain shape that you can make.
They had so much fun trying to make the “biggest” triangle they could make without letting the rubber band break.
The circular side we worked on making a clock and practiced telling time.
