In the Classroom: A Hoot!

Did you know owls don’t move their eyes, they move their whole entire head?  Anne Phillips spent the day with 22 Kindergarten students using the owl as the basis for a lesson in geometric shapes and the 5 senses.  After sharing facts about the owl, each student was provided with a variety of geometric shapes to create their own owl.  Each student selected 1 large circle for the owl body, a rectangle for the belly of the owl, and other shapes until they created circle eyes, a triangle beak, and so on.  With a few simple folding techniques everyone had their own owl creation.  At the end of the day Anne showed students how to create different owl expressions by placing the circles in different locations – paying special attention to ‘sight;’ one of the five senses.
