- White Drawing Paper (2 sheets 5" x 7" for each child)
- Tagboard (1 sheet 5" x 16" for each child)
- Markers/ Colored Pencils
- Glue Sticks
- One piece 5" x 11" Construction Paper for each child
1. Draw one image horizontally on each 5" x 7" paper. I did a warm and cool color lesson, but you can draw or teach anything.
2. On the back, demonstrate to students how to measure and divide each sheet into 7 separate sections.
3. Repeat on 5" x 16" paper and divide into 16 separate spaces.
4. Using the lines as a guideline, fold back and forth "like a fan" or a zig-zag. I showed the students how to place the ruler right onto the line and fold, making nice crisp folds.
5. Take one picture and cut along the lines. You should have 7 pieces. Skipping the first space on your tagboard, place each strip in order in every other space. Check for correctness.
When it is correct, glue down the strips.
I emphasize not cutting until this step and only cutting one picture. This eliminates any loose strips that can be lost when it is time for clean up.
6. Take the other picture and cut along the lines. Place in empty spaces, making sure to still keep the spaces on each end blank. Glue down after approval.
7. The spaces at each end that were left blank will be used to staple down onto 5" x 11" construction paper.
My pictures are aligned all weird because I still don't know how to easily place pictures where you want them!
