Alaskan Craft Activities

This winter the kids and I have been studying a lot about Alaska.  These activities have been a great way to learn about this Arctic state.  They’re designed for PreK and Kindergarten, but my second grader had fun with them too.

Alaskan Craft Activities

 

Construction Paper Eskimos

We’ve learned a lot about the Inuit tribes.  Here is an adorable craft activity to follow up the story, “Mama, Do You Love Me.”  I found this idea at Mrs. Kilburn’s Kiddos.

eskimo craft

 Supplies:

  • coffee filters
  • cotton balls
  • brown, white, black, pink, red, yellow construction paper
  • scissors
  • glue

I cut out the pieces from the construction paper ahead of time, so the only thing the students had to do was glue it together.

It was so easy and the kids had a great time using vocabulary from the story as they were working on their craft.

Mrs. Kilburn’s Kiddos also had a great way to use close reading, craft making, and measuring concepts.  I loved this idea but wanted to tie the Alaskan state animal into it.  I found a simple moose craft at The Measured Mom .  Not only was this simple, but it allowed my PreK and Kindergarten students to trace and cut out their hands.  This is a favorite project at our house!

 Supplies:

  • brown, black, and white construction paper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue

I drew and cut out the moose heads ahead of time.  Then I helped the students draw and cut out their hands.

After we filled in facts about the moose, we used unifix cubes to measure the length of each moose craft.  Unifix cubes are another hit at our house!

I have included these free printables to go along with your study.
