Could someone tell me what push lights are? (for the classroom) I've read you can buy them at the dollar store, but not quite sure what the are and they sound interesting. Thanks!

They are usually round (about 6" across I think), but I have also seen them in star shapes.

they need batteries, then you push the light to turn it on or off (like the bubble in the game 'Trouble').

You can read about how teachers us them on these threads:

Well, I can't find the first one. I'll keep looking. But here is the second one. Good luck!

I have a few in the house, but I never thought of using them in the classroom.

I love the little ones I have here at home. They have lasted a really long time, too. (Like, years). I keep waiting for one to fizzle out. I have them on my back porch (where we come in and out of the house) and also one in the hallway as you go into the kitchen (in case of a power outage, or if I just need a quick light to see for a midnight potty run).

Wax Museum

I use them for a "Wax Museum" that my class did last year. Students dress up as explorers and (along with their props) got in a statue pose. When a view came up to them and turned on the tap light they came to light and (in first person) told about themselves (explorer). When they are finished, they turn off the light and freeze until the next view comes up to them and turns it back on.

I got the idea from another teacher in my building who LOVES biographies and is always having a Wax Museum for something or another.

I have been to about 6-8 different D.T. stores and they only seem to have the yellow moon shape and the red heart shaped lights.
I think they are also called "Tap Lights".
