This instructable will give you the step by step to create your swan out of paper using cheap and easy to use materials. Your swan could be used to illustrate a character from literature, TV, movies and games.
This is a easy and cheap creation to add to any classroom lesson. Anyone younger than first grade will need more than one day of work, and pre-cut items might be helpful. Anyone younger than 2th grade you may want to break the lesson up. Do not fear, any K-12 grade level can be successful with this, you just might need to modify what steps they do. Pre-cutting templates for instance might be helpful. Working in small groups may be a good idea. You name it modifications can be made and I'm more than happy to help you come up with those modification. :)
