Odd Velvet – Activity #1: “We Are Unique”

Activity #1: “We Are Unique”


  • Felt markers
  • Crayons
  • Coloured tissue paper
  • Construction paper

Teacher Preparation:

  • To create pennants, cut various coloured construction paper from corner to opposite corner.
  • One piece of construction paper creates two pennants. Cut enough for each student.
  • Cut tissue paper into short strips — approximately 2cm (3/4 inch) by 15cm (6 inch).


Step by Step:

Step One: Brainstorm what makes each student unique, different, or special.

  • Examples: I am a good runner. I like grapes. I sleep with the light on. I like hockey.

Step Two: Have each student copy a phrase from the brainstormed ideas onto the pennant using a felt pen.

Step Three: Have the students decorate the pennants with crayons and any other art materials. (Glitter, stickers, etc.)

Step Four: Glue the strips of coloured tissue paper along one edge of the pennant.


End Product:

Personalized pennants proclaiming what is special about each student in the class. The heading above the display of pennants could read: Being Different is Cool! Division 5 is Unique! We Are Unique!
