Meet Mr. Alligator

on March 9, 2012

This week we kept with our ecosystem unit and made a Rain-forest. My favorite part is of course Mr. Alligator, a.k.a Tic-Toc, a.k.a Snappy. We created him using recycled water bottles (gallon size), paper towel and toilet paper tubes, and golf balls. After we constructed his body we used paper mache to cover his body. I took a shortcut and added powder tempera paint to the paper mache so we didn’t have to wait for it to dry to paint it. While it dried we made giant tissue paper leaves for our trees, and adorable monkeys in the tree. Now everyday I hear the kids sing…

5 Little Monkeys Swinging in the Tree

Teasing Mr. Alligator

You can’t catch me, no you can’t catch me

Along came Mr. Alligator

Quiet as can be

And he SNAPPED that monkey

Right out of that tree!

We also had fun outside learning how to play Monkeys and Alligators. This is the same game as Sharks and Minnows, I just changed the name to fit the theme.
