Activity #1: “Best Friends”
Raccoon template (provided)
Construction paper or stiff tag board
Trace enough raccoon templates onto construction paper or stiff tag board for each student.
Cut out templates.
Step by Step:
Step One: Have the students draw or paint a T-shirt and pants onto their raccoons.
Step Two: Decorate the T-shirt of the raccoon with the first letter of the student’s name. Each student can either draw the letter on the T-shirt or cut the letter out of construction paper and glue it onto the T-shirt.
Step Three: Have the students glue on the raccoon’s feet, tail, and black face stripe.
Optional: Print the first letter of each student’s name on the computer. Cut out and glue onto the T-shirt.
Display raccoons in a row down a hallway or around the classroom walls so that their hands are joined – focusing on friendship.
Fun with Fin:
Print and cut the Fin image provided (in ‘References & More’ section) to an appropriate size. Have his hands joined with the raccoons down the hallway or across the classroom wall.
