Cooool Giraffes - grade 3/4

Back to work today! It went so well, and it was great seeing the kids again. Since I'm still playing catch up, here's a project I did in early December, with a grade 3/4 class. I was inspired by this post but changed it a bit to study cool colors, which goes well with grade 3 curriculum.

We did a group draw of the giraffe - I gave them a piece of paper with only the nose drawn on it, which ended up ended up being the best thing ever. All of the giraffes ended up being similar but different, with the same dimensions. When they were done the giraffe, they painted them with cool watercolors.

Next, they painted a plain piece of white paper using cool tempera colors and silver glitter paint. When everything was dry the next class, they cut out the giraffes and glued them to the background. Then, they added details, like hats, necklaces, earrings, and sunglasses, to make the giraffes look "cool"-er.

LOVE how these turned out!

Also just a mini celebration - today marks the most views my blog has had in a single day! And it's only 5pm! Very inspiring. Thanks to everyone who continues to visit and follow the blog!
