Last week we got together with our grade 5 big buddies and made a craft.
We made bumble bees.
I found the idea at Housing a Forest.
We used pre-cut cardboard ovals, yellow and black yarn, tongue depressors,
and googly eyes (glue needed to attach them).
Each big buddy had made their own bee earlier in their own classroom.
First they wound the yellow and black yarn around the oval.
As I looked around the gym I saw many buddy pairs working together. Big buddies guiding their little buddies, letting them try to make their bee.
Here are a few of our Buddy Bees.
