Make your own Antelope Horns!

In this craft activity, learners will explore the structure and purpose of antelope horns by constructing their own headband using toilet paper rolls and yarn. They will also think about the differences between horns and antlers by playing a game similar to "Simon Says". This activity is standards-based and works well as a pre-visit activity to a museum.
