This simple light table center — transparent pony beads and tiny clear plastic cups with lids from the dollar store — created an engaging math activity for our preschoolers!
The students discovered that they could not fit very many beads into the tiny cups. They tried to squeeze in more than 12, but the lids just wouldn’t close!
Some of the cups are full of just purple or just pink beads (good sorting, kids!) while others are “rainbow” cups. When they were full, it was time to stack them and see if our tower could touch the ceiling. Not quite, but it was a good try!
Have fun playing and learning with your children today.
