Check out these cute giraffes, a fun activity to start off the day! All you need to give your students is a pre-cut giraffe figure with yellow and pink construction paper. Then, you can prepare smaller rectangles of different colours for your little ones to cut into small strips. Dont’ forget the spots too- Glitter or scrunched up tissue paper would look amazing : )
Duration: 15-30 min

” I asked the Zebra,
Are you black with white stripes? Or white with black stripes?
And the zebra asked me,
Are you good with bad habits? Or are you bad with good habits?
Are you noisy with quiet times? Or are you quiet with noisy times?
Are you happy with some sad days? Or are you sad with some happy days?
Are you neat with some sloppy ways? Or are you sloppy with some neat ways?
And on and on and on and on and on and on he went.
I’ll never ask a zebra about stripes….again.”
– Shel Silverstein
Here’s a fun activity to start the day:
Draw a zebra with a black marker and then decorate with rainbow-striped colours!
How will your zebra look like? 🙂
