Rolly Polly Penguins

I snapped these quick before my kindergarten students took them home and I think they are better in person.  It's such torture for them not to take home what they make, that I try to balance what I keep with what they take.  In this case, storage won out, and they took them right home.  Rolling 2 papers for the body and the head, and then using assorted shapes for the other parts helped to review shapes, along with basic paper sculpting techniques such as rolling, folding, and attaching.  This group even thought up names for the penguins- "Petey" "Rolly" "Trixie" and "Dinosaur" to name a few.
