1. Students will listen as the teacher reads the book Perfect Square by Michael Hall or uses the digital tool to show the book being read aloud.
2. Students will recall some of the ways that the square in the book was changed (cut, poked, torn, shredded, shattered, snipped, crumpled, ripped, and wrinkled).
3. Students will be paired with a partner to change a perfect square of construction paper into a new work of art. Each student will be responsible for creating two ways to change the square of construction paper.
4. Students will be paired into groups of two and each group will be provided with a square of construction paper, a pair of scissors, a hole punch, and glue. The students should work together to change the construction paper; remind students that each person gets to choose two ways to change the paper using the supplied materials.
