After making discovery bottles for number sense and computation, I decided to try making some bottles for fractions. I used some wooden pieces from a collection of sorting objects. There are geometric shapes, as well as planes, cars and even a horse. One of the bottles contains LEGO pieces. Here's a peak at them.

Here's what you'll find in each of the bottles.

Bottle 1 – Transportation theme

Contains 5 wooden vehicles

- 3 cars/trucks, one red, one yellow and one blue

- 2 airplanes, one red and one yellow
Bottle 2 – Shapes theme

Contains 6 wooden shapes

- 2 circles, one red and one green

- 2 squares, one red and one green

- 2 triangles, one red and one green
Bottle 3 – Mixed set

Contains 6 wooden shapes

- 2 circles, one red and one green

- 2 squares, one red and one green
Contains 5 wooden vehicles

- 2 triangles, one red and one green

- 3 cars/trucks, one red, one yellow and one blue
Contains 1 red wooden horse

- 2 airplanes, one red and one yellow

Bottle 4 – LEGO theme

Contains 5 LEGO blocks

- 3 large blocks, one gray, one black, one white

- 2 small blocks, one gray and one red

I have created a packet with directions for making the bottles and one activity page for each of the four bottles. Here are a few sample pages.

I love this idea! I am definitely trying it out! Thanks for sharing!
