I love these zebras so much! Got the idea here at 'Manuales' (this is my also favourite blog - gives me heaps of ideas for lessons so thank you!)
As done in the 'Manuales' project, I had made my own little horse but changed the pegs on the legs so they could remain moveable. I then decided zebras rather than horses would be lovely for my students as they would fit with my current Grade One theme of Endangered Species.
So, we painted everything white then copied zebra patterns with black markers.
My three grade 1 classes all completed this lesson. In the first lesson I had older classes 'buddy up' with us to help with the cutting out of the thick cardboard, knotting the tail etc.
Changing the position of the pegs means you can train your zebra to stand, walk, sit and even talk! :)
I had the children colour this African savannah type mural I drew with chalk pastels before adding zebras.
