We started with one triangle pointing up at the bottom and overlapping each row of triangles as we added more to shape the body of the owl. Next, I showed them how to cut circles from squares by cutting off the corners until they have a circle. We cut out three different sizes of circles and overlapped them to make the eyes.
I had planned on doing this with my Kg. class as well, but after seeing how difficult this was for 2nd graders, I changed my plans!
