Our craft today, was mainly for the younger girls (ages 4 and 5), and mainly about fractions, but I had G (age 11), help with the set up, so she could practice her compass skills.
For each of the girls, she drew two black circles, and one white, with 6 inch diameters, and one smaller orange circle, with a 1 inch diameter. E, cut her circles out, while G, and I helped C, with hers.
Then, the girls cut one of the black circles in half, for wings.
E, decided quarter circles would make better wings, but needed some help with her symmetry.
Once the wings were on, they cut the white, and orange circles in half, and half again, to make quarters, for the stomachs, beaks, and feet.
A couple of googly eyes...
...and both our craft, and a simple lesson on fractions, were complete.
