Easy Project You Can Do Tomorrow: Drawing with Pipe Cleaners

Here's the challenge: Draw the object using line. . . the line you will be using is made from pipe cleaners.

1. Twist three pipe cleaners together to make a straight line.
2. Bend and twist pipe cleaners to "draw" the object you are observing (we used scissors)
3. Draw your object using a pencil and paper. 

Some questions for students. . . 
Which was more difficult, using pipe cleaners or pencil to replicate the scissors?
Which was more fun to work with? Why?

This is harder to do then it looks.
