Cute project when learning about Jack and the Beanstalk. Each student colors/cuts out a leaf, twists a long piece of green butcher paper, and decorates a "Jack" with their picture on it. A string on a pulley system is created and the beanstalk is put together and hung next to the pulley. The kids are then able to make their "Jack" go up and down the beanstalk and dictate stories about what is at the top, etc. They LOVE this activity!
