In this fun fall activity, students create a squirrel following easy step by step drawing directions or they can follow directions for constructing him from cut paper. The easy to follow illustrations are laid out in such a way that this activity could be put into a center or used as a teacher directed activity. A background paper that students can use to form their squirrel upon is included as well as lined paper to use for a writing activity. Word wall cards are added to aid in spelling. The color words BROWN, BLACK, GRAY, and RED are used in the full color teacher read aloud. Students will be proud to show off their work and say I DID THIS MYSELF!
