Students will work in groups of 4 gluing strips of construction paper to make chains. This worked great for my classroom of little first graders. I would definitely do this activity with 2nd or 3rd graders as well. Worksheets are provided for students to write the "2 parts" they created with their chains when they are done. We did this as a WHOLE GROUP with first graders. Good luck and happy teaching!
