1. Language: categorizing by size: small, medium, large
2. Construction Center: building bridges
3. Science: We grew grass. Children watered it, trimmed it
with scissors, etc.
4. Gross Motor: Took turns walking across the balance beam
while reciting the story.
5. Chart for Children by Judy Nyberg has some excellent
print awareness activities also.

My favorite 3BGG is an edible diorama! This is very successful
in Pre-K and K:
paper plate
chunky peanut butter for the dirt
coconut dyed green for grass
large Frito for the bridge
3 white marshmallos (mini for little one)
purple grape for the Troll
blue Fruit Roll up for the stream

I do 3BBG at the end of Jan. And by far the biggest hit is when
the kids get to act the story out. We use: the table for the
bridge, with a chair at each end to aid climbing; a blue cloth for
the water; an old, silly looking hat of my husband's for the troll
to wear; and plastic daisies for the grass, next to our terrarium.
I find that the kids can soon do all the parts, including the
narration, and want to do it over and over.
