After discussing animal habitats, this was a wonderful way to wrap up the lesson! I was so amazed at the creative ideas they came up, the students LOVED this project!
First: Round up lots of shoe boxes from friends and family
Second: Go to your teacher closet and get out all our craft stuff (even the stuff you wouldn't think they would use...because they will.) :)
Third: Assign students to an animal. Enjoy! (but don't freak out about the mess because it will go away!)
ps. these are the McDonald's happy meal beanie babies, so they were the smaller ones.
Love the ice cycles...made out of Q-Tips
All students had to complete the activity above. They had to pull books and do research themselves to find out what their animal's habitat looked like.
Goldfish- rocks made with bottle caps, little fly made with yarn and paper. :)
Rain drops were Q-Tips colored blue
Must do again next year!!
