Mini-Research Real-World Activity

Pretend that you have a little sister who wants to learn about the alphabet.  You want to tell her about it, but need an easy way because she's just so little.  Go to the Alphabet Song site to learn some songs about the letters to teach your sister.  Then, go to the Kiddos site to see some pictures of things that each letter starts with, that way you can have some good examples to tell your sister about.  Pay close attention to this page because the last thing you are going to do is pick your favorite letter, draw that letter, and a picture to go with it to give to your little sister.

Steps for Real-World Activity
  1. Go to the Alphabet Song site and listen to some songs for each of the letters.
  2. Go to the Kiddos website and look at different pictures that go with each letter of the alphabet.
  3. Pick your favorite letter from the Kiddos page.
  4. On a piece of paper you will be given, draw the letter that you chose and a picuture of something that starts with that letter.
