As an extension activity with first
graders we brainstormed a list of things that the old lady
swallowed (fly, spider, bird, cat, etc...) Students
were given plain copy paper and crayons and told to create
something to put in the old belly. For the most part
we had animals from the song, but we did have a Jedi, a
giraffe and a dinosaur too!
old lady was made from a piece of bulletin board
paper. The hands were made by tracing my own hands
and cutting them out. The face and hat were made
from construction paper. You could probably find a
suitable graphic in a desktop publishing program to use OR
you could print out a copy of YOUR face to use.
