Simple, delightful reproducible patterns put the emphasis on fun in this Evan-Moor Crafts title that contains 26 projects for kindergarten through third grade students.
Help your students increase manual dexterity and learn the names and shapes of a wide range of animals that include: monkey, bat, beaver, bear, pig, dog, koala, mouse, duck, cat, cow, lion, frog, lamb, brontosaurus, bunny, penguin, hippo, toucan, skunk, crocodile, squirrel, kangaroo, elephant, giraffe, and dragon.
Every animal can be formed around a paper tube, which might otherwise be discarded. Just three or four easy steps and you will have paper tube characters that can serve many functions in your classroom. All you need to provide are toilet paper roll tubes, glue, and crayons.
There are so many uses for your paper tube projects:
* Finger Puppets -- Use in storytelling or retelling favorite literature
* Bulletin Board Displays -- Pin the characters in a line to create a border
* Desk Companions -- Tape the paper roll characters to students' desks to hold pencils, flash cards, sentence strips, or behavior rewards.
