With its movable water wheel on one side and the added house extension on the other side, the Colorado Water Wheel Mill is unusual and charming to build. The water wheel with its 16 slats, 8 spokes, and coloring needed on both sides of the paper, give it an extra difficulty level that can be left off for the younger students. Without the water wheel, the little house/mill would be perfect for younger children, first through third grades, and will the wheel, it adds an extra challenge for even high school students. This makes the little model perfect for homeschoolers with multiple grade levels in one family. It comes with patterns with all the details and a blank version. The blank pattern version allows you to add your own windows and details. The finished house measures about 5” x 7” x 4.5”.
Each house pattern is made to be printed on a regular 8.5” x 11” piece of cover weight photocopy paper. The complete instructions walk you through the process of creating a charming model paper house. I have included illustrated guides as well as full-color photos of the process. Collect all of them and make your own village or Christmas Town. The download allows you to print as many copies for yourself or your classroom as you desire. Please do not give them away or resell them. Support your local artists who need to eat and pay rent too.
You receive a 12 to a 14-page pdf file with the patterns, directions and alternative suggestions for coloring, etc. Perfect for gifts for special occasions, classroom projects or just family fun events, like sleep-overs and cabin-fever curatives.
