Mardi Gras jester non-fiction text for upper elementary with a fun and easy jester hat.
All you need to do is print out the jester hat pattern pieces on purple, green and yellow paper and the craft is ready to go. This is a great way to start Mardi Gras... Directions are included so you can send the craftivity home as homework and have them bring it back to class the next day to wear during the reading activity... great for bellwork and/or morning activity on the day of Mardi Gras.
2 readings are included and different levels so that you can differentiate the reading and activities... Students will read and then answer questions about the reading and use the dictionary to look up words in the nonfiction reading.
This really is a print and go, easy peasy Mardi Gras activity for teachers that are busy but want to still get a Mardi Gras celebration and meet standards at the same time!
