You will need three keys! Choose three different keys that go to different things. (Car keys, house keys, etc.). Separate them from your keychain so that they can be passed around separately. You will also need three small pieces of paper and a pencil for each child.
➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N
Pass out a pencil and three pieces of paper to each child. Explain that this is a silent activity. Pass around each key, one at a time. Tell the children to inspect the key carefully and try to figure out what the key is for. When they are ready to guess, tell them to silently draw a picture of what they think the key might be for. (One drawing per paper.)
After completing the activity, reveal the correct answers and see who was able to guess correctly!
Now discuss the following questions:
1) What was this key for? (Hold up one of the keys and discuss.)
2) Will this key work for anything else? (No.)
3) What was this key for? (Hold up another key and discuss.)
4) Will this key work for anything else? (No.)
