Here is an adorable winter collage activity my Grade Ones did with the help of our Big Buddy class. You can find all the instructions, including printable templates, at
I HEART CRAFTY THINGS provides two versions for templates to create the birds. One has the birds in one piece (other than the beak) and the other has them in multiple pieces. We used the multiple pieces version here. Putting all the bird pieces together would have been way too difficult for my little ones with the help of their Big Buddies. If you try this with a younger class I would highly recommend using the simpler template.
