3rd Grade Aboriginal Animals

As I find myself with a TINY bit of extra time, I'm going to put up another post from a project that has been done for quite a while. I found that I had so many projects that were finished at about the same time that this one has had to wait its turn to be displayed in the hallways. I like to photograph some of the best examples once I have hung the work and can see everything. 

This is a tried and true project that my students really enjoy. I've done it a few years in a row, so it might be just about time to try something new next year. I think most of us have a limit for how many times we can repeat a project before we get anxious to try something new. 

The big key to this project for me is having my students draw (and color with oil pastel) their animal on one sheet of paper that is later glued onto the background with the dots. I feel as if I have a pretty high success rate doing it this way. Enjoy the examples!

Check out my lesson plan!
