Hang around with insects, reptiles and crustaceans with this Mobile Hanger.
Building this mobile is a fun way to introduce engineering and science into the curriculum. Discuss the various habitats of the critters and where they are most often found.
Students will use problem-solving skills to balance various creatures on the mobile arms. Adding additional pieces of paper to a shape or making the thread longer or shorter combines both engineering and problem-solving.
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
