simple-to-make page for your portfolio is made with materials found in
the classroom. Information about your tulip predictions and actual dates
and measurements can be built built into the clever design.
- 2 sheets
of 8.5 x 11" tag paper
and red construction paper
colored pencils or crayons
by cutting a window into the middle of one piece of tagboard. This will
be the stage for showing the paper tulip emerge, grow and bloom.
- Cut a
slit starting just above and below the inner edges of the window. Stop
just before the top and bottom of the page (view full size images above
to see slits).
- Cut 2
strips (about 3/4" wide) from second piece of tagboard.
- Test the
strips for fit: slide strips into the slits cut above and below window.
Move them up and down in the slit.
- Plan and
cut a green plant outline that fits into your window space. Glue it
onto one of the strips. Feed the strip into the bottom slit to test.
- Plan and
cut a red flower and glue to the top strip so it will meet up with the
green plant when the strip is slid into the down position. Test and
You can create this special tulip graph and have it ready to go for recording
plants' emerging and growing data.
