Finish the Year with a Bang: Classroom Campout!

Classroom Campout

Hello!  I am Tami from Kamp Kindergarten.

Having a classroom campout is a fun end of the year activity for your little learners.  In this post I am sharing a fun camping book suggestion, an easy recipe for S’mores Snack Mix, and a Camping themed math FREEBIE for your little learners to enjoy during Classroom Campout.

A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee

A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee is one of my favorite books to share with children about camping.  The delightful illustrations and rhyming words whimsically tell the story of a camping adventure that will capture your little learners’ attention.  The story begins with Mr. Magee and his dog, Dee, setting off in their vintage Rambler convertible and canned ham camping trailer to camp in the mountains of Maine.  Though their camping plans are adjusted after the excitement of an encounter with a bear, the two make the best of their situation and still have a great time.  

S'mores Snack Mix

What's a campout without S'mores?  This simple, fun, and tasty snack mix is a great follow-up activity to the Mr. Magee book.

1. Ingredients

I tell students the bears are the bear in the story, the chocolate is the rocks, and the marshmallows are like the ones Mr. Magee and Dee roasted over their campfire.

2.  Put ingredients in bowls.  Learners follow directions and count out a given number of each.  Ten or twelve of each item works well. 

3.  Put the ingredients in a bowl or cup.

4.  Enjoy!

FREE Ten Frames Math Activity

Here is a FREEBIE to accompany your classroom campout activities.
