Free "Owl Puppet" Craft Template September 30 2009

Here's a free "Owl Puppet" craft template.

Grades: K-2nd

OwlPuppetDuring the Fall, when I taught 2nd grade, my students studied mammals & birds. My students took a field trip to the pumpkin patch farm. During this trip they learned about many types of animals, including owls. This can be a fun craft to suppliment what you are already teaching the students about birds.
