Teacher Preparation:

  • Enlarge the bus to the size of a bulletin board (using the overhead projector). Trace the bus onto a large sheet of yellow paper. Cut along the outside of the bus, including large holes for windows.
  • Use the black paper to cut two wheels for the bus. Attach the yellow bus and wheels to the bulletin board.
  • Trace enough ‘little people’ on stiff tag board for each student in the class. Cut out (or students can do this).
  • Prepare enough 15cm (6 inch) pieces of yarn so that each student has two pieces.

 

Step by Step:

Step One: Have each student colour/paint a ‘little person’, including the face.

Step Three: Pin the various ‘little people’ to the window areas of the bus.

Optional: Adult helpers use a glue gun to attach the yarn for the hair.
