The center included colorful pipe cleaners, cotton balls, and rectangular pieces of styrofoam.
Many of the students made rainbows, as pictured above. Then, I showed them how to make coils by wrapping their pipe cleaners around a pencil. They had to use their fine motor skills to get them to cooperate!
The thing that surprised me about this center was how quickly the students moved from making rainbows to creating really intricate pipe cleaner sculptures.
Before long, the center was a flurry of activity!
One student sculpted “3 Dinosaurs.”
At another center, the students made letters, shapes, and a big rainbow out of colored craft sticks.
