Using Hula-Hoops: Part 2 {A Bright Idea!}

It's that time again... BRIGHT IDEAS LINK UP!

Last month I shared about how we use hula-hoops in my room to designate personal space:

Did you know you can also use them to make super engaging VENN DIAGRAMS???!!!

Here are my sweeties sorting pictures in an activity my student teacher did a few weeks ago...

This year I taught an after-school program on Wednesdays.  One of the last weeks, we read two articles on bees.  I have each group of students 2 hula-hoops and nine strips of paper.  To compare and contrast the information in both articles, students had to write differences and similarities on the strips and place them in the spots on the hula-Venn diagram.  They loved it!

So, if you have some hula-hoops, they aren't just for recess!

Check out these other great bright ideas by clicking to the blogs below and keep up to date with me by clicking my social media icons under my header!

  2. I've used the hula hoop metaphor before but never thought of using actually hoops. Great idea.
