Kids throughout the years have had fun making paper chains.
Create a fun paper chain decoration for your classroom. This craft and cutting skill practice includes graphics from the 12 Days of Christmas Song. There are 3 days of printable strips (7 strips per page) that can be printed multiple times to create a paper chain that is as long as the classroom!
While this is used for younger students, high school educators can use this as a means of teaching methods of decorating from a historical perspective. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, children in rural or impoverished areas would find scrap paper and aluminum foil to make decorations for their homes and Christmas trees. High School educators you may also use this as a hands on method of teaching the historical representations (in childlike graphics) of the meaning of the 12 Days of Christmas.
This activity also meets state requirements for cutting and scissor skills for younger children.
• Meets many state’s standards for achieving scissors skills For example: New Jersey: 5.1.P.B.3; Pennsylvania 10.5.1
• Background and Clipart Credits are provided on the second page of the packet
