Introduction / Purpose of the Program
Students will make a lotus flower. These flowers can be used alone or decorate for the museum or in a commercial for the Island of the Lotus Eaters.

Detailed Description of the Program
The templates provided can be printed on colored paper, or have students color or paint them. Once decorated and cut out:
* curl the ends of the petals up with a pencil on all flowers
* Put glue in the center of the larger flower
* Place the next size down in the middle of the larger flower so that the petals do not line up with the larger flower
* Repeat these steps until the flower is complete
