A fun, hands-on craft activity using cut-out templates to create a creature to use in a narrative text.
Use this teaching resource in the classroom to make some crazy creatures.
- Download and print the cut-out templates (students can share one between two).
- Choose the body shape and other body parts needed to make a crazy creature.
- Cut out the template pieces and assemble the creature either on the paper body or on a 3- object such as an empty tissue box.
- Students can decorate their crazy creatures any way they would like to!
This is a fun activity to use in conjunction with the Planet Xubos Fact File and Xubosian Creature Report. Students can read about the fictitious planet and its habitats, then create a creature that can survive in one of the Xubosian habitats.
