Cleo the Crab!

This idea comes from the June/July 2007 Kindergarten/1st grade issue of The Mailbox Magazine

Project/Learning Activity:  Cleo the Crab.  Cut a crab out of red construction paper - start with a semi-circle then two sets of legs, and two claws.  Glue the crab to the top of a piece of paper.  Brainstorm ideas the the crab can hold with his claws.  Connor chose a flashlight and Ty chose a fork. Make the item out of construction paper and glue it in the crab's claw.  Develop a sentence from the item and write the sentence below the crab.  Materials Needed:  red construction paper, scissors, glue stick, white paper, pencil, construction paper
