• make your own edible bugmallows!
• draw your own house as bats might see it from the sky (connect with map-making)
• have each student draw a bat or decorate a bat cutout, and hang on thread from classroom ceiling
• Bats at the Beach Mural: Along the bottom of a long piece of dark blue or black paper, glue a strip of yellow or tan paper (sand) or half-sheets of sandpaper, and a thin strip of blue paper (water). Have each student draw, decorate and cut out a bat or family of bats engaged in his or her favorite beach activity. Attach students’ bats to the background. What kind of details or activities can you think of to add to the mural?
• draw what you think is in the bats’ attic
• make a collection of bumper stickers bats might put on their bags or baskets.
• design a beach towel for a bat
• make a pair of bat wings from an old umbrella (if you’re in a city, you can find lots of discarded umbrellas on a rainy, windy day!). Strips of cloth with Velcro at wrist, shoulder and waist will help hold wings in place. 3-4 umbrella panels will make a good single wing...
