Mirrors are great tools in the classroom. Check out these mirror activities on Stimulating Learning with Rachel.
1. Draw Self-Portraits
We use mirrors to look at our faces and then draw what we see.
2. Create a Reflection Table
A full-length mirror on a table creates a fun spin on different activities. Check out the ideas on Teach Preschool--Reflection Table (Teach Preschool)
3. Paint on It
You can use shaving cream and paint clouds (Happy Hooligans).
Or use paint - indoors or outdoors (Kids Activities Blog).
4. Use Them for Science Explorations
Reflection and light explorations (Little Bins for Little Hands)
Explore shapes and patterns with a mirror box (Imagination Tree)
5. Add Them to the Blocks Center
Stand a mirror against the wall so kids can see their buildings from all sides.
Lay a mirror on the floor and build on it. You can even add rope light with blocks and mirrors (Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds).
Mirrors, foam blocks, and wooden blocks (Inspired Montessori)
Of course, you can use them in the dramatic play center, to look at yourself in different types of clothing.
