Product Description
A collection of 7 printable templates of simple papercraft animals students can colour, cut out and fold to make a 3D creation. Includes dragon, turtle, two cats, dog, elephant, and giraffe.

I'm an art teacher and use these as an intro to folding paper along the lines (fine motor skills -- to go on to origami later). They also work well as a "My activity got cancelled and now I need something to do" or "calm down, it's Friday afternoon" activity.

I always give a demonstration about how to fold it (all templates have dotted lines), as well as how to pinch the legs to make them straighter. The first three (dragon, turtle and easy cat) are better for Ks, the rest for 1s because of the longer folds.
