Attached are all the tools you need to teach ear notching to your students. Geared towards grades 8-10.
A fun twist - have the kids cut out ears, and assign them a litter number and individual number. Once they've notched their ears accordingly, have them tape them on their heads (yes tape them), and then go around the room and record 6 other people's litter and individual numbers by sight (no cheating). If you pre-planned accordingly, see if they can get back in 'their' litters (I make litters about 3-kid big, so they don't have a lot of repetition when going around the room).
Twenty-five adolescents with pig ears taped to their heads? Hilarious!
I actually cut out templates for the ears and then do a fruit roll up lab (Ear Notching Lab Activity WS). They have a blast with it because....of course they get to eat.
Sounds interesting... how do you incorporate fruit rollups?
I have ear templates cut out of cardstock and they "trace" them with the end of their scissors and cut them out.
can you attach the templates?
Well.....I just free hand them! Usually by the time the kids get done they are more like elf ears!
This is AWESOME!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!!
