The hatI wanted to stretch my grade 6’s. So we made hats in groups with some specific rules…. The hat must be able to stay on the head of a jumping team member. The hat must have an obvious theme. (Ishould be able to immediatley tell what the theme is without asking) The hat must have at least 5 different kinds of paper manipulation as part of its design. Paper manipulation is whereby paper is used to create texture or form new parts of a whole…….that would be my difinition. Please tell me if you a more comprehensive definition. Examples are labled things like scrunch, tear, fold, fill, stuff, cut, overlap….and many more. The kids used wax crayons for the colour on these hats as the paper is too flimsy to handle anything wet when put together before the colour is added. See if you can guess the themes for some of these hats: must be able to stay on the head of a jumping team member.
