If you are looking for an easy way to have your students work in three dimension, and this project works great, even for 1st graders.

The biggest step they needed help with, sometimes, was cutting the slash for the ears. Drawing it in pencil for them before they cut was an option that helped some from getting frustrated. No matter how they got to the end though, they all loved their cats by the time there were done.

Early finishers can work with scrap colored paper to create collars, hats, crowns, you name it.



Time needed: 1 hour.
