It is so hard to implement activities anymore without having them Common Core aligned. This is why I chose to put a "twist" on show and tell. It is called the Antique Roadshow and it is Common Core aligned.
The best part about the Antique Roadshow is that it can be integrated into other subject areas. To integrate history, take pictures of your students with their “antique”. Then, sequence events with a hallway timeline display. You don’t have to use all the years. Just print the pages you need.
Pages 23-33 can be used to integrate math. Counting syllables, ordering “antiques” from oldest to most recent, or most recent to oldest are just a few ways to integrate math with Antique Roadshow.
Before starting the Antique Roadshow, it is important for students to understand the difference between telling and asking. I have included a statement/question pocket chart lesson to do with your class.
I use a thermal lunchbox to keep the directions, clue card and item in. A friend of mine uses a Thirty-One thermal bag. She had her class name embroidered on the front of it. They are only $18 and it is a good investment.
If you already have a bag in mind, then all you need are these labels to attach to your bag. This is what I use in my classroom.
So if you are looking for a mystery bag or show and tell with a twist, then check out Antique Roadshow. The Antique Roadshow Mystery Bag Unit is Common Core aligned to the following kindergarten standards.
