Craft Notes

Adult supervision required at all times.


A basic need is something that every living thing requires. The basic needs of all living things include water, food, shelter, air and space. Without these basic needs, living things will not survive. In addition to providing the basic needs, it is also important to provide love and attention, especially when caring for pets. Ask students to bring in a rock. Using a variety of craft materials, students will create and construct their very own pet. Once decorated, have students write a" pet information card" that indicates important information about the pet regarding its basic needs. Provide each student with a pre-written information card on which they will fill in the blank:
