What a fun and easy way to make crafts! Every week, students will discuss a creature, learn some fun facts about it and make a craft. Most crafts require under five items to create. Also, sometimes objects around the house such as paper towel tubes and coffee filters will be used in order to create inexpensive, fun and easy crafts. Students are encouraged to add creativity to these crafts in their own way if desired. This is an ongoing course with creature topics and crafts changing each week.
