Push and Pull
Hello! Mrs. Lewicki is always noticing and wondering. I have been noticing things moving all around me and am wondering how things move. Let's start learning about how things move.

Today’s Activities


Theme: Push and Pull, listen to “The Wind Blew” and use the sheet to make a list and more.


Retell the story and make a list of what moved; what happened in the beginning, middle end? What do you notice about how the objects moved?


Heavy versus Light; which weighs more? Less? What would a balance look like if the objects weighed the same–were equal? Use this worksheet to think about it!


Use these instructions and try laundry basket races; one person in basket, one pushes, against another team if possible.


Have you ever heard anyone say ’You are pushing it right now?’ What do you think that means? Do you think it is a good or bad idea? Why?

move it!

Play some “Move It” music and do a mirror dance with a partner, using pushing movements–hands to hands, back-to-back, knee to knee, and also just move your body to the beat of the music. If you like drawing, learn how to draw heavy equipment that creat pushes and pulls! The directions are also in the In-Hand Packet.
