Pattern Zebras

This was a fun lesson that I did with my Kinders yesterday.  First, I pulled-up this short story on You Tube about Zippy the Zebra and symbiotic relationships (yes, of course I planned a science lesson to go along with this...or maybe it was a happy coincidence). 

Then, I had pre-cut large ovals, small ovals, ears, and legs for the bodies.  If the classes were older, I would have them cut their own shapes.  I showed them the order to glue the shapes down & then demonstrated how to create a pattern in the body, legs, & head using markers.  Lastly, we glued yarn on the head, back, & the tail. 


  1. Oh, I just LOVE these! Pinning!!! The kids should be so proud of their absolutely adorable work!

  2. Cute!

    I nominated you for the liebster award (I just can't believe you don't have 200 followers, did I get this wrong?)
