The following videos demonstrate what we, here at Life Lab, refer to as "back pocket activities." These are all quick, easy, and highly engaging activities that require minimal preparation. We suggest always having one or more of these activities ready to go (or "in your back pocket") in case your lesson ends a few minutes early, or you have a few kids to keep occupied while the others are finishing a task. From searching for the colors of the rainbow to making jewelry from flowers, the activities featured in these videos can be done again and again, with kids seeing and learning new things each time they do them.
