Product Description
So that my kiddos can better understand the cylinder shape, and make that word part of their vocabulary, I make windsocks several times during the year.

They absolutely LOVE making them, plus, they’re easy-peasy for me, look fantastic suspended from the ceiling and take just a short amount of time.

It seemed only appropriate to make one specifically to highlight examples of real world cylinder shapes.

There are two patterns to choose from. Pick one, or give children a choice.

You can also use one as a worksheet for children to color at a later date or use for homework, early finishers or tuck in your sub tub.

I point out that the cylinder is made up of the flat, 2D rectangular shape, but when rolled, turns into a 3D cylinder. This simple fact never ceases to amaze them.

To get in some writing practice have students write the names of each example on a colorful strip before they glue them down.
They could also write attributes on the strips.

Gently roll the paper & staple into a cylinder shape. Punch 2 holes on either side, add a yarn loop & suspend from the ceiling.

I’ve included a poster for the center of your display.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy making a windsock as much as mine do.
