This is a simple paper, scissors, and glue activity. I pre-cut the popsicle and popsicle stick from construction paper and drew some lines on it. I had my older kiddos do some writing, and the younger ones strictly draw.
First, we discussed what a prediction was. Although we did this with Punxsutawney Phil in February, many of them didn't remember what exactly a prediction was (even though I say "make a prediction about what's going to happen in this story" about 100x a day!).
We then watched a short clip on what summer is from Brain Pop Jr. Just simply type in "Summer" and choose the video that is strictly about summer. It was a nice background for the kids who weren't sure about what they might predict. Each student made their prediction, and then drew a picture on the popsicle depicting themselves doing the activity. We then polled everyones summer activities and created a bar graph that we are updating each time we do the activity.
SOOOO get cutting and pasting and ready for summer!
