Making a Pirate Hat for a Pirate Unit


3 of 6

Trace and Cut the Foam or Paper
Making a Pirate Hat for a Pirate Unit

Tracing and cutting


Give your students either one sheet of foam, or for a paper hat, two pieces of construction paper.

Check to see that your students have placed the pattern open on top of the paper or foam, so all of it fits.

Give each student a white crayon and scissors. Have the students trace around the template.

Cutting time: if your students are weak cutters, have them cut some parts of the project, but keep the larger cutting for yourself.
