This Thanksgiving kirigami pack is perfect for November. Get your students ready for fall and Thanksgiving with these six fun kirigami designs. Just print, fold, cut, and display these kirigami creations to transform your classroom into a space that is bursting with festive fall colors and designs. Pumpkin, turkey, thankful hearts, dinner time utensils, and two leaf templates are included. A link to an instructional video is also included.
Kirigami is a great way to integrate the arts, and these templates allow students to create something they can be proud of with little to no teacher preparation. These templates also provide students with opportunities to practice following directions in a fun way.
Kirigami also promotes spatial reasoning, hand eye coordination, and appreciation for art and other cultures.
You will see the pride in your students' faces as they open their kirigami creations for the first time. The templates range from beginner to advanced, but each one takes time as students must carefully fold and cut to be successful.
Completed kirigami can be glued or taped to paper, hung from the ceiling, strung together to create a garland, etc.
