This camping in the classroom collection includes a wide range of activities for a unique classroom theme or a fun end of the year celebration.
We have put together this collection of camping in the classroom activities to make an exciting and engaging end of the year unit for your classroom.
The last week of school can be difficult. You still need to teach but it can be hard to gain and hold the attention of your students. We think a camping unit is a perfect way to keep your students engaged!
There are so many different ideas to make an end of the year camping unit fit the needs of your room!
Some teachers choose to go all out, bringing in sleeping bags and maybe even a tent or two. You can build a fake fire and have camping treats.
If that is more than you are able or want to do in your room, you can still have fun with a camping unit! Have students bring in flashlights, turn of the lights and have an afternoon read around in the dark.
Our camping collection includes a variety of resources so you can choose what will best fit your room.
Each resource we have created for this unit is provided as an individual download below. Click on the title to download each item you are interested in.
