1st Grade students just finished a project based on the book "Owl Moon" by Jane Yolen and John Schoenherr. Students learned how to draw an owl using basic shapes. We used watercolor paints in order to finish the owls. The night sky behind the owl was made from flicking white paint onto a black paper using a large paint brush. Students finished the project by gluing on branches and a moon, then cutting out and gluing their owl onto their nighttime background.
