Classroom Activities—First Flight

Making this little bird won't ruffle any feathers. Display students' birds by their writing on a construction paper perch as the birds contemplate their first flight!

Materials:

Step 1
Fold and glue three corners of the paper square so they touch the center of the paper.

Step 2
For tail feathers, fringe-cut the unfolded corner. Then gently pull some of the fringes forward and some backward for dimension.

Step 3
Cut paper scraps to make a beak and eyes; then glue them in place.

Adult supervision is recommended when children use scissors.
