  1. Demonstration: - Show the children how to make a simple paper plate animal, such as a lion or a frog. - Explain the steps involved, such as coloring the plate, cutting out shapes for ears or legs, and attaching googly eyes. - Encourage the children to ask questions during the demonstration.

  2. Hands-on Activity: - Allow the children to choose the animal they want to create. - Provide assistance as needed, helping them with cutting and gluing if necessary. - Encourage creativity and individuality in their designs.

Questioning: - During the activity, ask open-ended questions to stimulate their thinking and creativity, such as: - What colors are you using for your animal? - How many legs does your animal have? - What sound does your animal make?

Assessment: - Observe the children’s engagement and participation during the activity. - Assess their ability to follow instructions and use the materials appropriately. - Take note of their creativity and effort in designing their paper plate animals.
