Birdhouses

2nd Grade_archive

For their silent auction piece, the second graders made birdhouses. They each started with a paper loom (a rectangle of construction paper with slits cut into it) and chose 6 colorful strips of paper to weave with. They wove each of them over-under to create a checkerboard effect.  Once the ends were glued down, each student added a round door, roof, and a bird. I made color copies of each house to make them small enough to frame as a whole group.
