Father's Day is such a special day for all the amazing dads out there. And, like with all of the holidays we celebrate, it's a great time to introduce themed lesson plans. We can't wait to share some teaching ideas that are not just fun for Dad to receive, but for your students to make!
These little mustaches are not just practical but they're also super cute! You can try having your students add them to a picture of their dad, use the mustaches as a fun photo prop, or just make a silly mustache card. Take a look at the full lesson plan here for more details.
Layered gift tags are a great project to help your kiddos feel included. This may be an easy project, but it will leave your students feeling very accomplished. Help students put this little tag on their Father's Day gift for a finishing touch. Take a look at the full lesson plan here.
This jar project is the perfect way to teach organization your your kids! With only a few supplies, your students can take a boring glass or plastic jar and turn it into a great storage place for dad. Get parents involved by asking them to supply a new or recycled empty wide mouth jar. Have students bring in small treasures they know dad would use (such as nuts, bolts, tape, etc,) from home and then let them decorate the jars with these dad-approved tool dies. It will result in a cute and unique gift dad can use over and over again.Take a look at the full lesson plan here for more details on assembly.
Who doesn't love a sweet red heart gatefold card? Although hearts are typically used for Valentine's Day, we think this card is too sweet not to use for Father's Day. Turn the card into a writing assignment and suddenly it is a win-win situation! Check out the lesson plan here for more details.
This cut-out heart card lesson plan with the envelope is the whole package. You can easily add some variation by giving your students the option to use the heart or use a class taken picture in the middle instead. Just like the gatefold heart card, you can turn this card project into a writing assignment and get your students to practice their writing.
