Bean Graph
Materials: cups, spoons, chart paper, markers, cooked beans- black and baked.
Prepare a graph in advance using the chart paper; draw a picture of black beans on the top right hand side and a picture of baked beans on the top left. Have students taste the two types of beans and then write their names on the chart under the appropriate picture to indicate which bean they liked best. Discuss the results during large group and post on the wall.

Bean Names
Materials: liquid glue, various types of dried beans, Sharpie marker, white construction paper.
Cut one piece of long white construction paper hot-dog style for each student. Write each student’s name on the white pieces of construction paper with a Sharpie marker. Supply students with a bowl of dried beans and have them glue the beans on their names.

Beanstalk
Materials: green butcher paper, fishing line, stapler or glue – possible items: cup hook
Take a long sheet of green butcher paper and twist into a “beanstalk”. Use butcher paper to cut leaves and attach to the beanstalk with a stapler or glue. If you have a drop ceiling attach a length of fishing line to the top of your beanstalk and string the line through the support bars of a ceiling panel so the beanstalk will hang from the ceiling. Make sure your fishing line is long enough to loop through the support bars and down again to the floor. You can make the beanstalk grow or fall by pulling and releasing the fishing line. *If you do not have a drop ceiling attach a small, screw in cup hook to the ceiling to string your fishing line through instead.

Growing Beanstalks
Materials: dirt, Dixie cups, lima beans, water
After reading “Jack and the Beanstalk” to the children have them try growing their own beanstalk by placing dirt in Dixie cups and planting a lima bean. Have the students water their lima beans and then watch them grow over the next few weeks!

Act Out the Story
Materials: props for your play- yellow plastic Easter eggs (fake golden eggs), butcher paper beanstalk, harp etc.
Select several students to be “characters” in your play. The teacher can act as narrator as the students act out the story. Provide students with the props they will need to act out the story. Quick and easy costumes can be made with sentence strips using the blackline masters found in the Retelling with Headbands book located in the resources section below.

Compare and Contrast
Materials: Xerox copies of the front of several different Jack and the Beanstalk stories, glue stick, chart paper, markers.
Xerox the front cover of several Jack and the Beanstalk books. Shrink the copies so they will all fit at the top of your chart paper. Glue the copies to the top of the chart and use the markers to make the lines for a graph. Show the students the actual books and have a discussion comparing and contrasting the stories. Have the students write their names under their favorite Jack story and review the results in large group. Post the chart on the wall for future reference.
