NATIONAL DAY CALENDAR CLASSROOM – WEEK 27 – March 25 – 31, 2018
There are two fun ways to celebrate this week. Get out your scissors and some colorful paper. National Something on a Stick Day on Wednesday, March 28 doesn’t always have to be about food. The stick we will use will help us to celebrate Pencil Day on Friday, March 30, too!
1 6 x 6-inch colorful sheet of paper per student
1 pencil with eraser per student
1 push pin per student
Decorate the paper with the artwork of your choice. On one side, draw a straight line diagonally from one corner to the other. (See figure 1)
Draw another diagonal line to create an X and find the center point.
Measure two inches along each line going away from the center point and make a mark.
With your scissors, cut from each corner point along the line to the two-inch mark and stop.(See figure 2)
Fold every other corner toward the center, securing each section with tape if necessary.
Poke a hole through the center section of the pinwheel and then into the eraser of the pencil.
