Step 1: Gluing pages into the book
Students will glue their accordion-folded pages into their book covers.
- Use a paintbrush to spread glue on one panel of the folded pages and carefully place it on the paste paper.
- Before the glue dries, make sure the glued page is lined up with the spine of the book cover to ensure that the book folds properly.
Step 2: Attaching the puppet
With help from adults, students will staple the ribbon for their puppet to the back cover of their book. They will use a pre-cut paste paper circle to cover the staple, gluing it over the staple on the back inside cover of their book.
Teaching Tip: Communicate to students that there will be many moving parts of today’s lesson, that they should take initiative, but they may need to be patient at times if they need help from an adult.
Step 3: Gluing the pop-up
Students will use a paintbrush to apply glue to their pop-up fold. They will apply the pop-up drawing that they created to the pop-up fold. Before the glue dries, check to ensure that the book can fold properly with the pop-up attached.
Step 4: Finishing Touches
Invite students to add final details, coloring, or go over pencil lines with a permanent marker.
Introduce the Maine animal memory match game for students to play with a partner.
