This project is particularly special to me. My cousin lost his life in the line of duty July 22, 2015. Two weeks later, an officer in my own small community lost his life in a similar way. When I started my community helpers unit with my class this year, I couldn’t stop thinking about what happened to my cousin and our local officer. I decided to put some extra emphasis on Police Officers. I designed this craft with my cousin in mind. My students wrote special letters to the police officers. This is a small way for me to honor their service.
This is a great extension to go along with my Police Officers: Mini Writing Unit.
I hope you enjoy this craftivity.
UPDATE: I replaced the braid with a bun for the female officer and added instructions for a modified version of the craft.
