What do you think Jabali’s truck looks like? Make a drawing and explain to

TASK 2: MAKING A TOY YOURSELF - HOW TO MAKE A LIZARD
This is an assignment for groups of 4
Jabali makes his own toys. Do you also want to make toys?
Africa is home to many animals. Jabali likes to copy them! Create your own
lizard.
Materials needed to make a template for the lizard (each group
creates one template):
A template is a tool that helps you make the exact same thing every time you
use it. So you only have to make one template per group.
Plank (approximately 30 x 20 centimeters)
Nails
Hammer
Template of a lizard (Print per group the paper template of the lizard full
size. cf. Annex: Template lizard)
For each lizard you will need (each group makes 2 lizards):
1 piece of wire of 125 centimeters (pre-cutting to size)
Packingmaterial (about 25 x 8 x 0.5 centimeters)
examples: foam, plastics, bubble wrap
Wool or cotton yarn (knitting or crocheting yarn)
Cutting / bending pliers
Scissors
Blunt needle
Instructions
1. Put the lizard template on the board and hammer the nails on the indicated
crosses.

2. Bend a piece of wire of 125 centimeters around the nails and follow the
lines on the template. Decide in advance how you do this. Make sure you
start and end at the tail.
3. Twist the two ends at the tail together so that a tail is created.
4. Bend the tips of the tail with pliers so that it will not be sharp.
5. Now remove the loose ends of the legs off the nails. Grasp the ends of
the legs with a pair of pliers and twist them around a few times.
NOTE: Do not yet remove the body of the lizard from the mold.
6. Now we take the lizard off the mold. Bend the wire even more beautiful
in the right form. Make sure that the lizard can lie completely flat on the
table.
7. We are going to fill the body. Put your lizard wire on the packing
material and mark with a pencil the shape of the body on the packing
material.
8. Cut the packing material.

9. Lay the cut packing material in the form of wire and sew with needle
and thread together. Tie the ends of the thread to the wire.
10.Your lizard is almost ready. Bend the legs down so he stands on his
feet.
11.Now you have a beautiful lizard, decorate with paint or other materials.
Make it your own African animal.
Did it work?
1. You have made with your group one or two lizards . Now you can easily
make a few extra lizards that look exactly the same. That's because you
yourself have created the tools. What do you call this tool?
