Sizing up a California condor

Science uses models to answer questions.

What you need:

Just 10 Pieces of paper! Plain white paper like what a printer uses.

You might use glue, tape, or staples too, but don't have to.

Want to keep going?

If you want to turn your model into a real condor, use 4 pieces of paper long ways across the middle of the model to show the body! Look at the pictures to help you draw the feathers and face on your model! (Don't forget a wing tag!)
