Story map (in this case The 3 Bears): on a long piece of paper draw a path down the middle; write "once upon a time" at one end and "the end" at the other; draw simple pictures along the path for the kids to color and to aid in retelling the story; more can be added by the kids. In this case, draw the 3 bears, the woods, Goldilocks, 3 bowls, 3 chairs, 3 beds, and the woods again.

Who broke the chair? The 3 bears crime scene. Children enjoyed using cameras, phones and magnifying glasses to find clues around the Nursery.

Great way to practice fine motor skills (using tongs or tweazers) and visual discrimination skills (in sorting). Love this activity!
