Let`s learn how to make a grasshopper out of paper. I myself made a model of a grasshopper right in the classroom.A realistic image of a grasshopper was taken as a landmark.
Ten-year-old students looked at how I did, but did not copy, but did according to their projects.I got such an “Grasshopper”:
I immediately warned the children that starting work on the crafts was not necessary from parts like antennas or legs, but from where everything was attached, from the torso.
We turn the triangular piece of paper into a cone, outline three sides and glue the seam.
Next, cut a strip of paper for the chest:
We determine the proportions directly in the course of work, but try to do larger, but not smaller, because cutting paper is easier than stretching it.
The head will also be a cone rolled out of a triangle.
But let’s put this head aside and take care of the legs. The back saltatorial legs need a very large piece of paper.
The remaining four legs are much smaller, but still – do not skimp, make them expressive.
Now glue the grasshopper’s legs, I used a thermal gun, because it’s more reliable. We cut out two oblong wings, eyes and antennas.
Glue the head also with a thermal gun.
I must say that the grasshopper models that my students made were no worse than this, and maybe even cooler.
