I remember learning to create a flip chute as an undergraduate in college studying early childhood education. They are so easy to make and can literally be used to review every skill. Who knew a simple juice or milk carton could become a fun way to learn?
- 1 quart size juice or milk carton
- 1 piece of tagboard
- Measuring tape or a ruler
- Packing or strapping tape
- Black marker
- Scissors or an Exacto Knife
- Items to decorate the carton (construction paper, contact paper, tagboard, etc….)
1. Mark 1 ½ inches from the top of the carton and draw a line across. Do the same thing an 1 inch below that first line.
2. Mark a line connecting the top two lines together at each end.
3. Mark 1 ½ inches from the bottom of the carton and draw a line across. Do the same thing an 1 inch above the bottom line.
4. Connect the bottom to lines together at each end.
The card for the flip cute a super easy to make.
1. Cut index card in half.
2. Cut a off the bottom right hand corner of each card. You will put the question or the problem you want answered on the cards with this bottom corner removed.
3. Turn the cards over and write the answer on the cards with the missing right hand corner facing up.
