Product Description
Young children need practice holding a baby chick BEFORE a live animal is placed in their hands. This product gives you a print out and pattern to make baby chicks out of tissue paper. This allows the children to feel the weight of a chick, have a reference for the size of a baby chick's body and it gives teachers an opportunity to observe student behaviors (and scaffold instruction) on how to handle these delicate animals. This tool is especially helpful for easing the worries of fearful children and allows for less surprise behaviors on the first day of chick handling.
Simply print out the pattern pieces, cut the tissue paper to size and pinch the paper until you have the appropriate shapes. Staple it all together and TA-DA - a baby chick! Make as many as you'd like and since these 'baby chicks' are handled with delicate care, you can keep them for years. These can also be set up at a center for children to practice independently.
Written and pictorial, step-by-step instructions are included (for all of those visual learners out there). Happy Hatching! :-)
