Evergreen Trees

More cutting for kindergarten! The ideas this time is to cut strips of paper and each pieced is either longer or shorter than the one before it depending on if they start at the top or bottom.  Most students start at the bottom. I have to give them a goal of 15 branches or you'll have the student that shouts they are finished with four branches. The next class we add snow although in Michigan now the ground is brown we hoped for snow. Also this lesson gives me another chance to talk about glue. I introduce Mr. Gluey and how he doesn't like it when his head isn't screwed on when finished and he doesn't like when students bite his head or push scissors in it. We used glue sticks for this project, (not a big fan since the glue doesn't last) but hey, you can't beat it for quick set up.
