Giraffes for Haiti- Sunnyside

Giraffes make a great lesson in composition. The kids have to fit the whole guy on the page! Make room for the long neck AND the long legs. These 3-5 year olds amaze me every time. Then I gave them some little stamps to make the pattern, and the emphasize the height of the giraffe we gave them some leaves to eat.
