Life Cycles / Animal Stretch Books

Thanks to Kris at I {Heart} Teaching for posting the directions to make these fabulous books.  I came up with the idea to use them as a life cycles lesson.

 The covers were decorated using fingerprints and stamp pads.

 The students used spinners with different animal traits on them to create their own "new" animal.  It was from an AIMS activity.
