Connect the dots to reveal the picture of the circus animals. There are 700 dots to connect in this dot-to-dot, keeping your students busy for quite some time! The scene depicts an acrobatic marvel – a circus monkey lifting and elephant, lifting a mouse, lifting a tiger. A duck holding balloons and the ringmaster dog are watching the stunt.

(I placed the cover on the last page, because I assume most people want to print the dot-to-dot right away. Therefore placing the actual dot-to-dot on page 1 makes the most sense to me.)
Print this dot-to-dot for your classroom, year after year.
Once the students have finished connecting the dots, they may want to color their artwork. May sure to have some colored pencils, crayons and markers ready!
Students often enjoy competing with one another to see who can complete the dot-to-dot first. Teachers often hand out dot-to-dots to early finishers – particularly useful for after state testing!
Dot-to-dots may help students improve focus, fine motor-skills, and patience. They can also be quite relaxing and help ease any stress that a student (or adult) might be feeling. Hopefully this creative activity will inspire kids to draw their own imaginary scenes, and share them with their friends.
