Carry Jane Goodall in your hands! Have her observe the jungle from your desk. She inspires.
All you need is Cardstock, Crayons, Scissors and Glue (and 15 minutes) for this E.Z.P.Z. Buildable Mini-Project.
Each "Net" (the shape you get when you unfold a 3D object) is culturally relevant, and comes with interesting facts to read, consider, and share.
Little fingers take a couple tries but after that we have found that this is an independent mini-project the class enjoys doing on their own, while we meet one on one with your students.
