These wooden peg stars are super easy to make and can be decorated in so many ways. All you need to complete this activity are wooden pegs (6 per star) and craft glue.
I have included here pictures and directions for the most basic type of star, but depending on the time available and the and age of your students, there is not telling what they might come up with.
For younger students, I use this as a following instructions activity, that is, they listen while I verbally give the instructions and then complete each step.
For older students, I like to give them the materials and a completed star and ask them to make their own set of instructions based on how they THINK the star should be constructed.
I have included the recording sheet that I give my students for this activity.
