2nd Grade Bugs in Their Habitat

2nd graders learned about insects and arachnids for this project.  Each student chose one particular bug to study and draw in order to create these multi-media pieces  Students first drew a very detailed drawing of their bug on heavy stock.  The bugs were colored with colored pencil.  Next, the habitat was drawn, thinking about scale, and painted with tempera paint.  Finally, the bugs were attached using 3D O's.  This makes them look like they are popping right out at you!
