Invite students to get presidential with Crayola Model Magic® finger puppets! Then practice questioning skills with presidents interviewing presidents about their time in office.
Working in pairs, invite students to research U.S. presidential personalities and leadership styles. Before beginning the investigation, ask students to compose a list of focus questions for each pair to research. Examples might include when the president served, major events that occurred during his presidency, happenings with his family, etc. Encourage children to find pictures from the time period, if available.
Once research is complete, students will create a finger puppet of their chosen presidents. Begin this process by using Crayola Scissors to cut a 2-inch ring from a cardboard roll. Slit the ring down the side. Students work with a partner to wrap the tubes around each other's fingers and tape for a snug fit.
Mold egg-size pieces of white Crayola Model Magic around the tubes to create a likeness of the president. Build arms, pinch and press facial features, and attach hair or clothing. Dry 24 hours.
Students cover work area with recycled newspaper. Add color to the puppet with Crayola Tempera Paint, Multicultural Paint, and Paint Brushes. Dry.
Attach fabric and yarn for hair and clothing with Crayola School Glue.
