The first time I did this unit, I bought hats and asked a friend to help design them. I was blown away with the design and thought, "No way can I make such a great hat!" Not only can I do it, but so can the kids. They will love creating these sailor caps!
This STEM/STEAM activity will be something your students treasure and remember for years to come.
Add the final touches to you Columbus Day activities with this craftivity. The kids will look adorable in their specialty designed hats. This is the kind of project you hold onto all year and have students wear on fieldtrips (no need for name tags with these beauties on their heads.) We take our students to the fair, and our students are so easy to spot.
The hats tell the story of that first remarkable voyage. I also use these hats in my play, Columbus: The Voyage ~ A Play to Perform
