What's the secret of the Japanese Crane fable? Explore Asian literature with feathers in this cut-paper project.
Read the Japanese fable "Tsuru no Ongaeshi" to students. The fable's main character plucked its own feathers to weave into cloth. Why did it do this?
Invite students to create their own feathers. To begin the crane feather project, students fold several sheets of white paper in half and cover their work area with recycled newspaper. Use Crayola® Watercolor Paints to create a large feather on each sheet, using the fold line as the center of the feather. Allow to air-dry.
Students cut out the paper feathers with Crayola Scissors. Cut small slits into the colored sides of the feathers to give them texture. Ruffle these slits with fingers.
Use Crayola School Glue to attach feathers to drinking straws. Arrange them on colored construction paper or in a vase for a colorful reminder of the Japanese Crane fable.
Invite students to write original fables. Use the feather as symbols in the fables. Students share their original fables with small groups of classmates.
