1-2-3 Come Give A Hoot With Me
Are you looking for an activity for Earth Day (April 22nd)? If you're into owls, then I think you'll enjoy the "Give a Hoot; Don't Pollute!" writing prompt craftivity. Take a close look and you'll see that I used 2D shapes to design the owl, which provides a teachable moment on Earth Day to review shapes, as well as ways your students can take care of the earth.
The packet includes the owl poster pattern pieces and a writing prompt for older students. They can glue this to the back of their poster.
Completed projects look wonderful suspended from the ceiling.
I set this up as a listening and following directions-whole group activity, so that I could assess how my students were doing with that life skill.
Everyone got a large sheet of blue construction paper at their desk, along with the owl body and caption to cut and glue to their poster.
When everyone accomplished that, I passed out the shapely owl pieces.
To expedite this, I had set all of them out in student piles ahead of time. From there I'd hold up a piece and glue it on my sample and my Y5's would do the same.
We continued "monkey see-monkey do" 'til everyone had their poster done, which took us about 12 minutes. If you have older students, they can simply get their supplies and work away.
I've also included some "Give a hoot" bookmarks in full color as well as black and white for your kiddos to color. Click on the link to view/download the Give a Hoot Earth Day Owl packet.
Well that's it for today... Short and sweet, or at least I'm trying. Thanks for visiting. I have my grandchildren Kaitlyn and Kaiden today. (5 months and 2 years)
Hopefully the weather will warm up, so we can go for a nice long stroller ride. Regardless, it will be a day filled with snuggles and giggles. Wishing you a love-filled day too.
