1st Grade Dancing Giraffes

This first grade project is based a fantastic book entitled Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae.  The book teaches kids that everyone has their own way of doing things, and that we should all embrace each other's differences.  The main character of the book is a Giraffe who eventually becomes the best dancer in the jungle.  First graders each created a dancing giraffe and were able to experiment with some really cool techniques for making the moon in the background glow and making the grass look very real!  They had a great time with this project!

LOVE those giraffes!
They're so beautiful!
I'm a teacher too (I'm an artist, but I don't teach art...) and I love to see what others are doing! Good work!
