This is a really fun and exciting project our awesome librarian Sheri D'Amato shared.
Have students hold a piece of printer paper behind their backs and tear it in the shape of a snowman (or whatever theme you would like to use) using only their hands.
Students can not look at what they are doing. No previews.
Once they are done students show what they have torn. But that is it you can not tear anything else off once you have viewed it.
The next step is to glue the torn piece of paper to a sheet of construction paper and write a 5 sentence story about their torn paper.
Awesome job Mrs. D'Amato!
