Category Archives: U is for Utah Pioneers
This week for the Walk Beside Me LDS Preschool curriculum, we have another vowel. We are talking about U is for Utah Pioneers. How fun to introduce some Mormon pioneer history to your preschooler! This would also be a great packet to save for Pioneer Days on July 24th.
Obviously there are some great resources you can discuss while discussing this topic. You can
do a Pioneer maze
read a poem about Seagulls
figure out a hidden Pioneer Message
discuss what a Pioneer is today
read a story about Pioneers
read a Matt & Mandy comic about handcart pioneers
read about pioneer journals
make Pioneer Pudding
watch a movie about Winter Quarters or
a movie about the Saints going west
read the prophet’s words about pioneers
play pioneer games
play a pioneer trail game
go on a “pioneer trek”
watch this movie about the pioneers
make butter or
make a marshmallow covered wagon!
Whew. All that, in about ten minutes of searching. The options for activities are endless! I’m also including an Amazon widget full of some awesome activities to enhance your Utah & Pioneer learning!
Don’t forget to grab the Walk Beside Me LDS Preschool schedule to find ways to best implement this into a full preschool curriculum. If you’re new here, check out the FAQ Page. And please, don’t forget to browse through the Walk Beside Me Store as a small percentage of the proceeds goes towards me and this curriculum!
I’d love to hear about ways you’ve used this packet, or the Walk Beside Me curriculum with your children. Do you have any other fun pioneer suggestions or activities? Leave a comment and let us know!
