Science

1. What do Bunnies Like to Eat? - Go to the library or pet store and find out what bunnies eat.

2. Rabbit or Hare? - Find out what the difference is between a rabbit and a hare.

Reading

its not easy being a bunny by marily sadler www.daniellesplace.com

1. Read "It's Not Easy Being a Bunny" by Marilyn Sadler - This is a great story to help your child learn to be thankful for what he has and who he are. In the story P.J. Funnybunny was sad because he didn't like being a bunny. He had to eat cooked carrots every day, and he had too many brothers and sisters. He decided he didn't want to be a bunny any more. He tried being a bear, but living with the bears wasn't very exciting because they slept all winter long. He tried being a bird, a beaver, a pig, and a moose, but none of them worked out. At the end he decides what he really wants to be is a bunny, and it's not so bad being a bunny after all.

After reading this story help your child think of other animals that P.J. Funnybunny might have tried living with. Discuss what he would have liked about living with those animals and what he wouldn't have liked. Ask your child if he had a to be an animal, what animal would he be. What would he like about being that animal and what would he dislike.

2. Make Up a Story about a Bunny - Name your bunny and make up stories about it. Act out the stories using the carrots and the bunny.

Math

1. Math Stories - Make up stories about the bunny and how he lost, gave away, or found some carrots, and have your child figure out how many carrots the bunny has left. For example, you may say, "One day Hoppy the Bunny gathered a bunch of carrots into a big pile. He looked at the pile and wondered if he had enough carrots for his family. Can you help Hoppy count his carrots?" Or you can say, "Hoppy had ten carrots in his mouth. On his way home he got hungry and stopped to eat some. How many carrots did Hoppy eat?" Have your child count how many carrots are left in Hoppy's mouth and figure out how many he ate.

2. Deliver Carrots - Make a list of the people in your family or neighborhood with the number of carrots each person should receive next to his of her name. Have your child help the bunny deliver the correct number of carrots to each person. You can use candy, cards, or notes instead of the carrots. Or you can write little notes on the carrots.

3. Feed the Bunny Game - Write numbers, letters, words, shapes or math fact on the carrots. Tell your child, "Bunny would really like to eat carrots with the letter "a" on them. Can you find a carrot with the letter "a" and feed the bunny?" If your child feeds the bunny the wrong letter, make a yucky sound and have the bunny spit it out. Keep playing until all the carrots have been eaten.

4. How Far Can Bunny Hop? - Pretend your bunny is hopping and help your child measure how far he can hop. Have your child jump as far as he can and measure the distance of his jump.
